Despite only having 4 models, with only 2 models on sale at any given time, the iPhone’s success is mind blowing. Recently it was announced that Apple was the number one smartphone manufacturer in the US and they are now shipping more smartphones than Nokia which used to be very popular. However one recent report claims that Apple are shipping more smartphones worldwide than any other single manufacturer, which needless to say is very impressive. The leading smartphone manufacturers are companies like Apple, Samsung, Nokia, RIM (although it doesn’t look like they will remain a leader) and HTC.
2011 might be the best year for Apple with regards iPhone sales as they are predicted to sell more iPhones this year than every other previous year combined provided rumors are right about a cheaper iPhone being released in the Fall.
