Samsung takes over from Nokia as biggest handset maker

Seyi Lawal

Long gone are the days when a good number of people in your circle had a Nokia phone. Now Samsung is the biggest-selling mobile manufacturer in the world.

According to an industry study, Samsung shipped 93.5 million handsets in the first quarter of 2012 while Nokia shipped 82.7 million. 

AFP reported that this was the first time in 14-years Finnish giant Nokia had dropped from the top spot as the manufacturer has struggled to maintain dominance in the wake of Android and Apple devices. 

Though Nokia is fighting hard to return to the top with its Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone, Samsung has already issued impressive financial results from January to March this year and with the imminent arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S3 it’s happy days for the manufacturer.
