Samsung overtakes Apple to become the world’s top maker of smartphones

“The South Korean electronics giant Samsung has overtaken Apple to become the world’s top maker of smartphones.
Latest figures show it shipped nearly 28 million smartphones from July to September against 17 million by Apple.
Samsung only entered the market in earnest in 2010, and profits from its telecoms division more than doubled from last year.
At that time Apple was dominant with nearly 17.5 per cent of the market. via: euronews ”
