Samsung Galaxy S sales hit 5 million mark

Post by maximus » Sat Oct 16, 2010 11:31 am

Big landmark for Android smartphone

More than 5 million Samsung Galaxy S handsets have been sold to date, according to the Korean electronics giant.

The Android handset has proven to be a major hit since it arrived on the market in June, with millions snapping up the iPhone rival.

The Samsung Galaxy S has a larger screen than Apple's iPhone, and the Google Android mobile OS has become a hugely popular alternative to traditional phone operating systems.

Fourth spot

Samsung is hopeful that the encouraging sales of the Galaxy S will keep it on course to move into fourth spot in the global smartphone manufacturer rankings, behind Nokia, BlackBerry maker RIM and, of course, Apple.

The smartphone has often been touted as the only credible alternative to Apple's iPhone4.

However, three million Apple iPhone 4 handsets sold in the first month after its release, which would suggest that it is still well ahead of the Galaxy S.

I think the sales figures speak for themselves :) Also the Adroid 2.2 update is now being rolled out so it's all good. Cheaper than an iPhone and better, that's a win/win for Samsung and Android ;)
