Samsung shipped more than 300 million handsets in 2011

Samsung Electronics says it’s shipped more than 300 million mobile phones this year. It’s the first time this figure has been reached since Samsung started producing mobile phones in 1988.

Nokia is the only other mobile phone company to have previously produced this many mobiles in 12 months.

Samsung shipped over one million mobiles for the first time in 1996, later reaching the 100 million mark in 2005. The company has now produced 1.6 billion handsets to date.
