i think Samsung will be the star of the next decade will only hear the name of apple as laptop but not smartphone maybe Sony will continue with 10% of the market and 5% for Htc .. 5% for Nokia and all the other brands will have 5%...soo 70% will be SAMSUNG

Yeah, when you release a flood of phone spam everywhere and count millions "SHIPPED" as "SOLD" you can do that. This is just Samsung's way of manipulating the media and fanboys to create mindshare for their junk.

I don't think so as 40+ millions having S3 so its really hard to them to update s3 with s4 as Samsung already announced that some S4 features are going to soon available for s3.
I think 250 to 300 million is final.

S4 is spectacular but the rest of their phone are lame. 250million will be close to reality.

Most of Samsung sales are smartphones, you are talking about Nokia which most of their sales are regular phones.

Samsung beat Apple iPhones sales with their Galaxies.

Not 1 million, not 5 million, not 50 million, but 500 million samsung phones. Way to go SammY.

But this is just 10 million Galaxy's, the rest 490 million phones would be US$ 20 basic feature phone maybe with black and white display.

Apple would sell double these amount of phones in no time.

Cheers to Apple & Steve Jobs. May you both rest in PEACE.

Cheers!!
