iPhone has outsold Samsung smartphones by 219 million to 131 million, analyst

Sales of the iPhone 4 and 4S have been so astronomical it will be a long time before Samsung can catch up

All those reports claiming sales of the iPhone are slowing down could be wrong if a analyst's chart comparing sales of iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 to sales of the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note is correct.

According to Raymond James analyst Travis McCourt Apple's iPhone has outsold Samsung's smartphones by 219 million to 131 million over the past two and a half years.

The chart shows the iPhone 4S in first place, followed by the iPhone 4 miles ahead of the iPhone 5, SII and SIII, which appear to have converged.

The sales of the iPhone 4 and 4S have been so astronomical it will be a long time before Samsung can catch up, appears to be the message.

McCourt believes that Apple has extended its lead over Samsung in the last 12 months, writes BGR.

Earlier this week Samsung announced that it has shipped more than 100 million Galaxy S phones since May 2010, when the smartphone was released.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
