The parent company is a behemoth, allowing Samsung to produce their own displays, processors and memory at their own pace.
Apparently, the next 12 months is crucial. I don’t know if these figures are correct but Korea Times says Samsung plans on selling 11 Million smartphones in 2011 over their 2.5 million in 2010? I’m sure Samsung has sold more than that?
The next 12 months is possibly more important to Nokia than ever with the launch of its long awaited MeeGo powered handset and new Symbian UI. For quite a long time Nokia has given its competitors such an EASY ride with quite half hearted products (hello N97). Hardware wise, they could have produced something more than the bare minimum Symbian requires. 2011 is no such year for compromises, Nokia. Will we still see you as Number One come 2014? Maybe the world has already ended in 2012.
