Packed by the powerful Galaxy S line of phones and the first true Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung is the cell phone company that posted the highest revenue in 2010 (yes that includes Apple)
Chinese language newspaper Economic News Daily did an end of the year recap with some very interesting news. In addition to the news about Samsung, HTC was the 5th most profitable handset maker (Apple was the top). Nokia shipped the most handsets in 2010, so in terms of feature phones and dumb phones worldwide, Nokia still has their footing.
This news was reported by Market Intelligence and Consulting Institute. A pretty good source of data.
