II read something that said that the Samsung "Galaxy" type of smartphone (tends to be the most expensive phone with all providers) sold over 5 million in Q4. If true, it's more than half of their smartphone sales...

I wonder what the numbers for tablets are. Would they beat PC too?

Great. The numbers just reaffirms the end of PC Era & WINTEL. Can we get the predictions for next few years for PC & smartphone markets? Hope to see a lot of market disruptions in coming years :)
