THE ONGOING LAWSUIT between Samsung and Apple has thrown up some interesting figures overnight, as both firms have had to hand over their books.

Documents filed on Thursday, and quickly snapped up by Allthingsd reveal Apple's and Samsung's US shipments, as Apple attempted to prove that its rival has hindered sales of its Iphone devices.

According to the statistics, Apple sold 85 million Iphones in the US between 2007 and the second quarter of 2012, bringing in $50bn in revenue. The firm has also shifted 46 million Ipod Touch devices as well as 34 million Ipad tablets since that launched in 2010.

Samsung isn't doing too badly either. Between June 2010 and June 2012, Samsung sold 21.25 million phones for $7.5bn in revenues, includng 1.4 million Galaxy Tab devices bringing in $644m.

Samsung's biggest seller was its flagship smartphone last year, the Samsung Galaxy S2, which has been snapped up 4.1 million times in the US. The Korean phone giant also managed to shift 2.25 million Galaxy Prevail handsets and 1.89 million Epic 4G phones.

The court case between Apple and Samsung, which is expected to go on until the end of August, has exposed some interesting information from both parties, despite the firms' wishes to keep as much competitive data under wraps as possible. µ
