Poor results from Nokia in the past quarter didn’t help.

Financial Times is reporting that Apple has become the number one Smartphone vendor in the world with 20.3 million iPhones shipped in the second quarter.

On the other hand, Nokia shipped 16.7 million units, down 34% from their previous quarter. Keep in mind that Android devices probably sell more but there is no single manufacturer that is close to Apple- both HTC and Samsung ship about half as many Smartphones as Apple.
