I guess its all in what you choose to highlight about the numbers. Looking @ Samsung (my favorite), The volume is up by nearly 6 million over last year BUT their market share has (surprisingly) DROPPED by 2 percent from last year. Well, maybe the Galaxy S2 will help them out a bit.

Actually that may be because the number of people that are trying to get smartphone gets bigger, dumb phone sales will keep dropping, I think this is why they are working harder on the gs2

370 million phones will end up in a landfill or your drawer in 2 years :)

Have to say, I'm Surprised HTC isn't selling enough to be in the top 5.

Motorola has being out of commission for a while, they are staring to recover, HTC is a new company and only makes smartphones rim.... I have no clue
