Samsung has announced some record fourth quarter earnings results, and a sterling performance in the mobile market, as well as tablets.
In 2010, Samsung managed to achieve a total revenue of $139 billion. That boiled down to a figure of $14 billion net income.
In total, Samsung shipped out 280 million mobile phones in 2010, which was up 23% year-on-year. 9% of those handsets, around 25 million, were smartphones (and 10 million of those were the Galaxy S).
The Galaxy Tab also did well, accelerating to sales of 2 million by the close of 2010. The company had initially expected to shift 1 million, so that anticipated target was doubled.
All in all, it was a pretty good year for Samsung. The company will be hoping to push further on with its most successful tablet and smartphone, with successors the Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy S 2 ready for showing at MWC next month.
Samsung also has four other Android handsets in the pipeline, the Galaxy Ace, Fit, Gio, and Mini.
