    Samsung Galaxy S III dethrones iPhone 4S as smartphone sales champ for Q3 2012


    [​IMG]
    The Galaxy S III has overtaken Apple's iPhone 4S for the first time ever to become the top selling smartphone for Q3 2012, according to Strategy Analytics. Samsung claimed the pole position by shipping 18 million copies of its flagship handset during the quarter, compared to Cupertino's 16.2 million iPhone 4S units. Of course, serendipity is also likely at play, as the iPhone 5 hit shelves towards the end of that period, likely cannibalizing 4S sales -- in fact, the market research firm thinks Apple's new top handset will likely trump Samsung in Q4. That means the Korean giant may have to step up its game, or it'll just be keeping the top spot warm for its arch-competitor. Check the PR after fold for more info.​

    I am wondering if this changes revenues for apple?
    They are still the richest buggers in the market.

    They are not the biggest in terms of revenue but they are the biggest in terms of market capital.Which means they have a lot of stock money which is not a big thing.

    Microsoft once was the biggest market cap, the same value as apple today like 10 years ago, it all went down so this market cap will decrease to half if the company has one bad bad news.

    Today's news does peg Apple at a lower rung.. their stock is down 30% since a peak in September, and some are now believing that they have lost their edge ever since Sir Jobs passed away.They've apparently removed/fired their head of OS development and some other dude as well.

    They hired their software head for not signing a public apology for the maps issue in IOS 5.

    As for apple themselves, they will live it out for a decade or so max.
