Samsung is Now the Largest Handset Maker

This year will be the first time in 14 years Nokia’s name is not top of the list, according to analyst IHS iSuppli. That honour will go to 2011′s runner up: Samsung.

IHS predicts global smartphone shipments will rise by 35.5 percent this year, while overall cellphone shipments are expected to rise by only around 1 percent. This rapid smartphone growth will push 2012 smartphone penetration to 47 percent, up from 35 percent in 2011, it predicts.
