Samsung (SSNLF.PK) overtakes Nokia (NOK) as the world's biggest provider of cellphones, ending the Finnish company's 14-year reign. Samsung's shipments rose 36% to 93.5M phones, well above Nokia's 82.7M. With shipments of 44.5M smartphones, Samsung also regained the lead from Apple (AAPL) in that segment.

    The sad thing is that there are many people who associate "biggest" with another word in the English language - best.


    Which is patently far from reality.

    Long time nokia fan (last phone was an n900 - you had to work to even find those) and I recently switched to the samsung galaxy nexus. I prefer the nexus, I just miss the hardware keyboard.


    Nokia, come back. I miss you. You were the best.


    Now, I hate to say it, but samsung might just be that :/

    Some cheap versions of the galaxy are just on the line of being called "smartphone". I wonder how many equivalents to the iphone are they selling...
