Nokia Falls To Second Place In Smart Phone Wars To Apple: Apple Fanboys Rejoice, Google Fanboys Still Don’t Care
Apple announced that they shipped nearly 20+ million iPhone handsets last quarter, up nearly 18+ million units in comparison to the first quarter of 2011. (That’s a lot of phones people.) While, Nokia, being the slackers that they are, managed to under sell their first quarter (24+ million handsets) down to a mere 16+ million units this quarter.
So, what does this all mean. Well, for those of you who can’t count, that means Apple outsold Nokia by volume for the first time ever. (However, Apple has been laughing all the way to the bank because they have always been the leader in revenue and profits.) That said, Apple also did this only offering two handsets to a cross-section of Nokia options for smart phones. Not saying the war is over people, just saying it’s getting interesting.
