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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
