Samsung bests Nokia to become top smartphone brand for 2012

The competition to become the top smartphone brand is definitely cutthroat, and it's one that Nokia has dominated for the past 14 years. It looks like that'll all change soon, with Samsung poised to take that first place spot from Nokia to become the top smartphone brand in 2012. That's according to a new IHS iSuppli report, which claims that Samsung will account for 29% of all smartphone shipments by the end of the year.

Apple found guilty of infringing on three MobileMedia owned patents

It looks like Apple was found guilty of patent infringement. The case is coming out of a US court in Delaware and the case called into question three patents that are held by MobileMedia. In total, it is said that MobileMedia holds about 300 patents. This case in particular goes back to 2010 and while it originally began with 14 patents, it eventually worked down to three patents.

Nokia headed to Android hints job posting

We have some potentially awesome news to share with you all this Friday afternoon. While it might be a little premature, Nokia could in fact finally be realizing they should have gone with Android -- the best mobile OS in the world. New reports are surfacing today that Nokia is looking to hire some new "principle software engineers" and many think this could finally be their arrival into the world of Android.

Android sales double from Q3 2011 to Q3 2012

A report from analysts Gartner has broken down the sales of smartphones from Q3 2012, and the numbers are rather interesting. As you would expect, Android was the best-selling OS by a sizable margin. Along with that, it also had the highest percentage of market share for Q3, and the competition was not even close.

IDC: Samsung beating Apple in smartphones too

For mobile smartphone dominance, there's only two horses fighting for first: Apple and Samsung. After iSuppli estimated that Samsung now ships more total phones than the previous leader Nokia, IDC now claims that the South Korean company has ousted Apple from its perch atop smartphone shipments as well. They estimate that Samsung shipped 42.2 million smartphones in the first quarter of 2012, to Apple's 35.1 million iPhones. Technically Samsung also sells Windows Phone devices, but it's fair to say that they sold more Galaxy-brand Android phones in the last four months than Apple sold iPhones.

Samsung is now the #1 phone manufacturer in the world

There's a lot of Samsung news on Android Community lately, but can you blame us? Sammy seems to bring out a new smartphone every week, and their high-end devices like the Galaxy Note and the upcoming Galaxy S III are among the most coveted worldwide. A milestone that Samsung's been working towards for years has finally been passed: they've unseated Nokia as the number one phone manufacturer on the planet. According to IHS iSuppli, Samsung sold 25.4% of the mobile phones (including smartphones and "feature phones") in the first quarter of 2012.

European carriers say Nokia should go Android

If you've been following smartphone news from some non-Android sources, you probably know that Nokia's Lumia 900 has made quite the splash over on AT&T. But apparently it's not doing so hot across the pond: reports out of European cell carriers say that their retail staff can't make a case for other Lumia phones like the 710 and the 800. Why? It's the software, of course - Nokia's gone full Windows Phone 7 with their smartphone line, something that's a hard sell for European customers expecting Android.
