Apple, Samsung: IHS, Strategy Analytics Can’t Agree Who’s No. 1


>>Strategy Analytics this morning reports that Samsung sold 44.5 million phones, putting it in the top spot ahead of Apple. IHS iSuppli, on the other hand, says they estimate Samsung sold only 32 million units. Hence, IHS put out its own press release saying Apple retained the smartphone crown.

Strategy Analytics announces:
Samsung shipped 44.5 million smartphones and overtook Appleto become the world’s number one smartphone vendor by volume.
IHS writes:
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. in the first quarter overtook Nokia Corp. to become the world’s largest cellphone brand for the first time. However, Samsung remained in second place in the smartphone segment of the cellphone market, behind Apple Inc.
