So, for years, we’ve always heard that Nokia was the number one manufacturer on the planet. Wasn’t so much around here, but globally that thing was like David Hasselhoff was to Germany.
Well, recently a stat has come out that shows that Samsung has finally ousted Nokia from the top spot. Congrats Sammie! 44.5 MILLION phones worldwide. Wowza.
And it’s no wonder that the rumours are already floating around that the Jelly Bean Nexus would be made by Samsung.
As much as I love the Samsung devices, I have my reservations.
With the HTC Nexus One we were getting the true Nexus device in Canada. With the last 2 on Samsung we missed out because of … well that’s up to debate who blocked our ability in Canada to get a proper build with direct access to Google, but that’s 2 for 2.
But who else besides Samsung? HTC? They have some wicked One series phones. I’m probably picking one up as part of a promotion our local carrier has (not sure I’ll switch entirely from the Nexus tho’).
LG? Acer? Motorola might be a clear choice, but they’re trying to be fair as they’re too close to each other.
Who’s your pick?
