Samsung Rising -- Surpasses Apple in Smart Phone Sales

With all the hype around Apple -- most of which in my view is justifiable -- one must never forget about how competition can drive massive change in the marketplace. I don't think anyone is going to see innovation out of Samsung in the same way we saw it in Steve Jobs' Apple. But maybe 70% to 80% of that level/quality is good enough for the vast majority of people and while being first market is important does waiting for similar functionalities six months or a year down the road make that much of a difference?

Note however that Samsung and Apple have been going at it for some time, with several pending patent infringement suits.
