Samsung is planning to sell 374 million handsets next year
Samsung is looking to
heat up the competition
with rival Nokia in 2012 by increasing handset sales by 15 percent.
According to Samsung, it is planning to sell 374 million handsets next year, which is a 15 percent increase from the company's projected 325 million handsets for 2011.
Of the 374 million handsets, Samsung hopes to sell 150 million smartphones in 2012.
Samsung's rival Nokia, on the other hand, is expected to see a 5 percent decrease in handset sales for 2012 at 399 million. The company has had some issues recently with its first Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 800. The new addition to the Windows/Nokia family was accused of having faulty battery hardware, but Nokia revealed that
broken firmware was the reason
for the phone's problems.
It's very possible that Samsung could beat out the competition and increase sales, since it already managed to surpass Apple as the world's top smartphone vendor from July to September 2011 with its Galaxy S smartphones. This was quite a feat for Samsung, considering
all the lawsuits flung back and forth
between the two companies this year over Galaxy/iPhone/iPad infringement.

Apparently my AT&T version is much better since it beat your international sh1t in the Basemark benchmark.
I wouldn't buy the Sprint or Tmobile version though. What is also sh1t is the fact that the stupid case makers keep trying to sell cases made for the international version for the AT&T version. I have ordered 7 cases and only have one that fits correctly and doesn't block both noise canceling mics. I blame Samsung for releasing slight derivatives of GS2 to satisfy stupid carrier requests.

The att and international sgs2 are identical in every sense except for the capacitive buttons, there's no reason one should be faster than the other unless one is using older firmware.

Not sure what you are smoking, they are nothing the same. LOL, just reread my post. In terms of processor/gpu/memory, yes. Everything else, no. And I was replying to the poster claiming my "american sh1t" was worse than his internatianal sh1t. Thanks though.
