Sammy plans to sell 10 million Samsung Galaxy S II units this year
Sammy had a ten million units target for the Samsung Galaxy S last year, too, and it was met right after the holidays; the company has sold about 14 million of last year's Android hit to date. It's totally achievable, provided they roll out the SGS II in subsidized form with carriers worldwide as soon as possible, because we are playing around with one in the office, and it is really the Android phone to beat this year. Unless, of course, you have baby hands, but that's a topic we'll discuss in the review.
The interesting part is the rumor that Eldar Murtazin spread this week in regards to the Apple-Samsung lawsuit, about a Samsung Galaxy S3 upgrade that is coming late fall, with 4.5" edge-to-edge Super AMOLED Plus display of high resolution, and no hardware keys. These same features Apple is said planning to introduce in the iPhone 6, which will appear many months after the SGS 3, which must have annoyed Cupertino to no end.
If true, this will leave the Samsung Galaxy S II just about six months to achieve the ten million quota, but it's nice to have goals. Moreover, the Samsung Galaxy S managed to pull this off last year.

im now torn between the sgs2 and waiting for the sgs3. of course, since the sgs3's reported 1700mhz processor is probably just the same exynos overclocked.. im sure XDA can fix that difference quickly. Of course the entirely new screen could be a deal breaker.. lol.

There really isn't any proof though the s3 wont be out for another year i mean it was a rumor... lol, I'm waiting for the the s3 or quadcore!!!

maybe the S3 will be quad core. that could also explain the 1700mhz rumored clock speed. ooooh.. juicy rumors. lol
Samsung themselves said that they want a 8 month or so product cycle, so if they can launch this thing by may then christmas is only 7 months away. Of course, they are probably talking about the launch from the first country, which already happened.. which definately puts 8 months at christmas.
All rumors n speculation, but hey.. why not.. im bored at work.. lol

Did you mean "'buttonless' gesture area"? If it was touchless then it wouldn't be able to recognize a gesture.

sure, it could be a kinnect style interface.. that would be cool and odd at the same time. can you immagine walkin down the street and seing a bunch of people waiving their hands and doing odd things at their phones to control it. it would be funny anyways. lol
