News: Samsung sells over 300 million handsets

Red hot Samsung has said that the company has sold 300 million handsets in 2011 as of November. A report from The Chosunilbo states that "Samsung Electronics sold more than 300 million mobile phones worldwide this year, the second phone maker after Nokia to achieve the milestone in one year."

According to the report, Samsung sold an average of nine handsets a second and 820,000 a day. If the 300 million handsets are piled up, they would be more than 300 times the height of Mt. Everest.
