Samsung Galaxy S III is the king of Q3

Samsung has finally overtaken Apple for the first time ever with the Galaxy S III becoming the smartphone sales champ for Q3 2012. The S3 has beaten the iPhone 4S as the best selling smartphone for the quarter which may have been partly due to people waiting for the iPhone 5 but I'm sure Samsung will take the win regardless. Engadget has the details.

The Galaxy S III has overtaken Apple's iPhone 4S for the first time ever to become the top selling smartphone for Q3 2012, according to Strategy Analytics. Samsung claimed the pole position by shipping 18 million copies of its flagship handset during the quarter, compared to Cupertino's 16.2 million iPhone 4S units.
