Samsung overtakes Nokia to become world’s biggest phone manufacturer

Nokia's run of being the world's leading phone manufacturer has finally ended. Read on to find out more.

After 14 years at the top of mobile stardom, Nokia have finally fallen behind Samsung in the stakes to be the world’s biggest phone manufacturer.

In the first quarter of 2012, Samsung managed to ship a massive 93.5 million devices – 35% more than last year.

Demand for Samsung’s Galaxy range of device has seen the South Korean based giants record a $4.5 billion profit in total.

Nokia still managed to ship 82.7 million of their devices, but clearly times are changing and Nokia are finding it hard to compete with Samsung’s ever increasing number of devices.

The gap will surely only get bigger with the imminent announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
