Samsung has shipped more smartphones than Nokia and Apple

Seems like the execs at Samsung has a reason to smile today – the Wall Street Journal reports that Samsung has shipped more than 20 million smartphones in their last quarter (that ended Sept. 30). The WSJ cited a “person familiar with the situation” as the source of the information, which if it’s true, means that the Korean electronics giant has surpassed Apple and Nokia and has become the biggest cellphone manufacturer by volume. With the holidays looming in the horizon and the recently announced Galaxy Nexus, it seems that that number is only set to increase before the year ends.
