    Last year, Samsung's biggest problem in mobile was fighting off Apple lawsuits while trying to become the number one household brand. They succeeded on the second front, and things are looking better for the first one, but this year they have an entirely new problem on their hands. Their chipset division is having trouble keeping up with demand for all of their hot-selling smartphones. They have even started outsourcing from other manufacturers to keep up.

    yes and no. It's awesome to be so popular that you have trouble keeping up, but when they can't supply their product in a timely manner to people that need/want it, specifically other MFRs, it is likely to lead to them losing the business. Samsung has done an amazing job though at keeping up with all the demand for their own products and for parts to other MFRs. Whoever is controlling the ship is doing a bang up job. I expect them to figure it out with little noticeable delay
