For the first time in a VERY long time, the iPhone isn't the best selling smartphone in a business quarter. For the 3rd quarter of 2012, that honor belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S3. I don't think I have to tell you how popular the GS3 is, especially if you've been reading this site for a while (which I know you have). Selling 18 million units in Q3, the GS3 narrowly edged out the iPhone 4S, which sold 16.2 million units. Of note...the iPhone 5 sold 6 million units in the quarter, so if you combined the line of Apple products, they were still #1 in sales - and the iPhone 5 wasn't available for sale the whole 3rd quarter, so its possible this stay at the top for Samsung is short lived. Still, I'm sure Sammy will take whatever small victories they can get.
Until then...all hail the new king of smartphones!
