Prediction For 2013

300+ million - Samsung
97+ million - Apple

Thus Samsung became ' CHAMPION ' ( shortage of words to describe samsung :( )

YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME...
97+ Million.... apple???
C'mon...

If you see the graph, and follow news, you'll know that apple already hit their ceiling.

People area moving away from iphone 4/4s/5 into GS3 & Note2.

2013 is a VERY CRITICAL year for Apple.
I bet apple only sell around 50 million unit and becoming number 6.

1. samsung
2. huawei
3. sony
4. zte
5. lenovo
6. apple

Watch this name Victor. H ...

Almost 98% of the articles against Nokia and Windows Phone are written by him.

Phonearena ,, I'm an old user here and I'm asking you to fire Victor H. as soon as possible. Otherwise, you would loose your strong credibility.

Guys, before thumbing me down, just have a look on the article's archive and pick any anti- Nokia or Windows Phone article, then ...

Whether or not you're correct about how he covers the subjects of Nokia and Windows Phone is irrelevant. What matters is whether or not he has his facts straight. If he's inaccurate, call him out on it, and back it up with facts of your own. Otherwise if he's correct, then it's news.

Old news is often as misleading as incorrect news. Why not tell all the facts? Also, if WP8 is so terrible, then explain why Nokia sold twice as many Lumias as the previous quarter?

Like I said before, OLD NEWS.

The thing about old news...it shows the rapid rise of the iPhone and Android in about 2 years for each platform.

It also shows the rapid decline of the old Win Mo and BB....and the death of Palm.

All within 2 years.

This article is also about a 2 year span. 3 years if you count WP.

See a pattern?

I find it extremely hard to believe that WP phones before Nokia were sooo bad...that Nokia is coming to save the day for WP. You wanna compare the first WP devices to the first Android ones?

The first WP devices were like the iPhone 4 or GS 2 and 3 compared to the first Android devices. Especially the OS. The iPhone 4 is a nice phone. The OS was nice too.

I had a RAZR, and I had to load up 1.6 on my Droid 1....and I barely touched it after. Anyone wanna talk about lag and Android..I invite you to use my phone with 1.6. Eeww...lol. Android has come such a long way since 2008...amazing lil OS it is....

Android grew so much in 2 years...WP...not so much. There was and still isnt a mass switch of Android users to WP.

I keep saying....it is what it is. I still say give WP 3 more years....before we yell FAIL. Might as well say the same thing for Nokia running WP.

Let's not get personal here. The sole reason why WP is lacking because ex-Symbian users are not moving to the platform because of its limitations and certain guys won't move from the 800/900 to the 920/620/820 thanks to the sort of terrible experience they've had with WP7.x. Obviously, that's not to say the move to WP is stupid, but yes, WP needs to be better to help Nokia gain back its original crown. Long story short, Nokia needs to find a way to provide functionality to WP aka customize WP to make Symbian/MeeGo users gain entry to the platform. The hardware is generally very good, but ex Nokia owners won't move to WP if they fail to find all what was there in Symbian/MeeGo, Besides, this dumb US only strategy/focus needs to stop.

i think he is so 'touched' by the fact that nokia's failure is due to the lack of strong platform, and you can not say that he is writing articles against nokia while he provides the facts,

The numbers do lie, because they are old numbers, and Nokia recently made a profit for Q4...

lies, damn lies...
Q4 profit is from BB paying license fee + selling HQ + getting money for whoring with micfosoft
That's the reason nokia say that Q1 2013 it will be back in RED.

Eflop one of the most efficient zombie/virus ever released ... if you couldn't do it in 2 years you cannot do it ever. Compare with Android ... and accept that not many like WIN-DOZ.
