News out on Samsung, they expect to sell 300 million phones in 2013
With the early rollouts of the new Galaxy S model and an update to the Note series later in the year, analysts predict Samsung will sell at least 300 million smartphones in 2013, widening its lead over Apple. Samsung's smartphone shipments likely surpassed 200 million for the first time in 2012.
The company plans to act more aggressively to increase its share of the tablet PC market this year, which is still dominated by Apple's iPad, its executives said in an October conference call. The release of mini tablets that are between the size of smartphones and standard tablets also opens up a new growth area for Samsung.
While the mobile phone division has replaced Samsung's semiconductor business as the biggest profit generator, robust demand for smartphones around the world is benefiting Samsung's semiconductor operation as well. The company is the world's largest supplier of TVs and memory chips.
Analysts said Samsung's semiconductor division fared better in the last quarter than the quarter before as higher Samsung phone sales and launches of new mobile products by its customers lifted demand for Samsung's mobile processors.
Good. Buy one of those also - MANY CHOICES.
This way you can cherish the one that holds its' value - iPAD, and have one of the regular ones in your car without care. Of course, by having the one and only unique looking one, you'd probably take it with you.
AFTER ALL, no-one gives when they see someone using a Droid itteration, but everyone notices the iOS one.
A true story.
For Samsung,they can build their junk cell phones and trash them to get the 200 millions. These people are losers and will stay losers until they proof otherwise. they steal ideas, they copy/paste and sell junk phones. I have Samsung SmartTV at home, another piece of junk which i will be returning back this weekend.
90% of their 'Phone sales' are free door stops given to poor third world nations or Poor ,broke European nations. As soon as these people have the means, they dump the Samsung for Apple. Not all but most.
