According to a Reuters poll, Samsung continues to increase its lead in the smartphone market over Apple and Nokia.  Samsung and Apple have been going back and fourth over the last several quarters, but the launch of the Galaxy S III has provided Samsung with a substantial lead. Samsung has sold approximately 50 million smartphones this last quarter, wherein Apple has only sold approximately 30 million iPhones.  Samsung also out sold Nokia by selling almost 16 million more mobile phones than Nokia did in the second quarter. “Samsung is expected to be the smartphone hero in the second quarter,” said IDC analyst Francisco Jeronimo. “We are also expecting to see the biggest smartphone volumes ever shipped from one single vendor in one quarter, driven by strong demand of the Galaxy portfolio, particularly the Galaxy S II and S III.”
