Samsung Going Strong on Smartphone Terrain; Pushes Apple, Nokia Behind in Q2 Race

July 25, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

If you thought it is tough to bite into Apple’s supremacy, think again. For, Sammy has just done that. Samsung has managed to pull down Cupertino’s dominance in the smart phone arena.  It isn’t just Apple that Samsung has beaten in the smartphone race – it has also pushed Nokia by the way side.

Smartphone sales figures in the second quarter of the current year show that the popularity of Android has helped Samsung race ahead. Sammy sold around 21 million smartphones on a global basis. In the meantime, Apple sold 20.3 million iPhones and Nokia sold 16.7 million units.

Figures put forward by research firm Strategy Analytics bring to the fore the smart phone scenario at the moment and where it is heading for. Credit goes to Samsung’s professional manner of tapping the market with their Galaxy smart phones and the popularity enjoyed by Google’s Android operating systems.

What we get to see here is a three-pronged battle, and the winner could well be the Android devices in the long run too. Such is the popularity that they enjoy in the marketplace. Samsung, we hear, will be looking at doubling sales of smartphones this year. Meanwhile, Apple will need to push both Samsung and Nokia off the track if they are to regain ultimate supremacy.

The scene turns out to be interesting. Join us as we g tracking the movements in the smartphone terrain as days progress. By the way, what phone do you own?
