Motorola will be announcing the Moto G shortly. The handset is expected to be a lower-cost alternative to the Moto X. And coincidentally, we recently saw price cuts for the Moto X both on and off-contract. Motorola also opened up the Moto Maker to all four major US carriers this week. But with all this Moto X news, a new report coming from the Wall Street Journal brings talk of poor sales.

LG hoping to reach 10 million in sales for the G2 smartphone, however it wasn't until today that the goal was officially confirmed from someone within the company.

Samsung originally launched the GALAXY S 4 on April 27 and since then we have seen both good and bad reports in terms of shipments and sales for the handset. The reports on the bad side seem to have been coming from analysts and on the flip side, the positive reports seem to have been coming from Samsung.
LG announced their Optimus L Series II line of smartphones, sales of the currently available Optimus L Series devices have reached a new milestone. In short, LG has said Optimus L Series sales have topped 15 million. This handset originally launched during Mobile World Congress in 2012 and according to LG, has been selling at the rate of one device per second over the previous two months.
Apple's turn. We saw Google's Q4 results yesterday breaking $14.4 billion in revenue, but today's results from Apple are huge. It's technically their Q4 2012 calender year but is listed as Q1 financials. The fruit company racked in over $13 billion in pure profit too.

Just like many companies preparing for the new year, LG is aiming for some impressive sales numbers and has recently detailed a few of their goals and expectations.

LG is puffing out its chest today with the announcement that its Optimus L smartphones have passed 10 million units in sales. The devices included in the Optimus L series are the Optimus L3, Optimus L5, Optimus L7 and the more recent Optimus L9.

Amazon is not the only company seeing a huge increase in sales over the craziest shopping weekend of the year.

B&N says that NOOK sales "doubled over the four-day Black Friday weekend, across all channels, based on information provided by our channel partners on a sell-through basis compared to the similar period last year.”
Samsung Galaxy Note II. In fact, it just surpassed 5,000,000 in sales worldwide. Two million of those sales have come in under a month. Samsung only just announced that the device has passed three million, and in a matter of weeks, it's added another two million units.
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.
