I am not particularly surprised about Samsung's 2012 market success in smartphone as well as tablet. Although, the company has been putting its strategy well positioned in world markets and this now beginning to manifest.
The South Korean giant has announced a turnover of $52.4 billion and a net profit of $8.27 billion at the end of the last quarter of 2012. These figures mean that Samsung has increased its annual income by 18% and its operational profits by 89% which is quite striking given the uncertainty in the market and the global economy.
Samsung's last quarter smart phone sales is around 63 million units, which is the same as the combined total of Apple and Nokia sales. This puts Samsung in the lead in the smart pone market and shows that Samsung's roadmap with Galaxy and Note series was spot on.
