A survey conducted by Bloomberg News reveals that Korean electronics, Samsung has shipped close to around 92 million handsets in the first quarter of 2012. Included among these are also basic handsets manufactured by Samsung. Stats reveal Nokia’s reign in the handset market may have ended, thanks to Samsungs affordable priced mobile phones.
Nokia has sold 12 million smartphones and 21 million low end units amounting to 83 million units for the first quarter. Since 14 years Nokia has led the way in the global handset market.
