"Samsung Electronics Co., the world’s second-largest handset maker, may have
surpassed Nokia Oyj (NOK1V) and Apple Inc. (AAPL) in smartphone sales in the

smartphones globally in the period, compared with 16.7 million for Nokia and
20.3 million iPhones, Neil Mawston, a London-based analyst at the research
