I was reading another report which claims samsung sold 50.5m smartphones instead of the 36m claimed in this report. Goes on to show that how random these guesses are. http://mashable.com/2012/07/27/samsung-surpasses-iphone-shipments/ Anyways majority of the phones sold by samsung will be cheap useless phones with 0 margins. The revenue/profit nos says it all. Apple made ~9B profit from 35B sales. Samsung made 5.8B from 41.5B sales.

China's population is 3 times of US's population. If product is priced right to the China market, I am sure the percentage growth of Huawei and ZTE phone will be substantial. In terms of actual units, it's about the same as Samsung's. The table doesn't show HTC sales. I wonder where they are. In addition, what's breakdown of Andriod and Windows in Samsung sales?

Why is this 36 million unit number for Samsung 15 million units different than every other report that had Samsung shipping over 50 million in the second calendar quarter? Just google 50 million and Samsung. There are hundreds of stories.

Peter : Would appreciate clarification to one of your statements above ( para 3, line 6 ) : " .. a shortage of 28-nm silicon Apple .. " Is that what you really meant ? Or is it still 32 nm ( Samsung )
