Samsung Galaxy S II might have already sold 6 million
It's only been less than three months since the Samsung Galaxy S II has made its debut across the globe, but sales of the super slim handset have already soared to the staggering 6 million, according to tech blog Digital Versus which quoted a Samsung report. Just three weeks ago sales of the Android-powered device clocked in at the whopping 3 million, 55 days after roll out

At such a rate, the Galaxy S II seems well on track to beat its predecessor, the Galaxy S, which registered some 14 million sales in less than a year. Even more so when we count the fact that the US market, which happens to be the biggest contributor to sales of the original Galaxy S, doesn't yet have it. 

But the wait shouldn't be long - the 4.3-inch Galaxy S II is expected to land stateside “sometime in August,” Samsung's own head of mobile business Shin Jong-kyun said earlier. The dual-core handset will be coming in three variations: the Samsung Function for Verizon, the Samsung Attain for AT&T and the Samsung Within for Sprint. Growing with this healthy pace, the Koreans might well challenge Apple as the biggest smartphone maker in the world for the quarter. It's only a couple of days until their financial results for the quarter are out on July 29th, so stay tuned.

Guess Sammy can afford those Lawyers to handle Apple and the patent cash to Microsoft after all, huh?

Geez. 3 Freaking months. No Amazon price cuts for the GS2 anytime soon after launch for this baby. But some HTC's and other Samsungs are fixing to get real cheap .....

Exactly, also there are reports that Samsung is now the #1 smartphone maker/seller in the world. So that is a double owned by Samsung. lol Apple doesn’t look too great now. All those people who bought the iPhone 4, I wonder if there are any people left who will buy the iPhone 4S or 5? lol

Okay, so it's 6 million Samsung Galaxy S 2 phones sold in about 90 days; at 55 days it was about 3 million. That's a huge jump; they've doubled their total sales in a month. And like it's been said, this is without a US launch, and WITH a lot of competition from other Android offerings.

sick but i find the gs2 as a NOW phone, no features or specs revolutionary, its still a great phone. the best android is currently offering but the lack of life changing specs is scary. imagine how much sh1t we will be getting from iPhans when the iPhone 5 matches these specs. high end android phones>iPhone. gingerbread~iOS4.x the real battle is NP vs iPhone 5 and ics vs iOS5

I doubt that iphone5 will catch up with these specs. it doesent need to. when it only plays what pass through itunes and run apps that should work well on other devices, I'm betting that iphone5 will have an A5 for application processor, same resoloution as iphone4( or a little more, depending on 3.5 " or 4" screen size.) 8 megapixel camera ( that steve jobs might call a reveloution in photography) and same connectivity az iphone4.
I really cant imagin it coul catchup with MHL , usb on the go, loading speed in browser, and good conectivity of GSII...

But Iphone has (and will have) a reliable screen (like are all LCD screens). Not like buggy AMOLED (and sons).
And Retina is (with NOVA), the best smartphone screen, before SAMOLED+.
And Apple sis (like MOTOROLA and HTC) much much more reliable than SAMSUNG.

About SGS2 (and AMOLED in general): Do people like buggy screens with poor lifespan or do they don't be aware of that when buying ?

sales wise it may great but i wonder if they could match apple's huge profit margin for every iphone sold.

It's been sold out here in Spain for more than 2 weeks. Waiting list is a month under Vodafone carrier.

That's why I bought a Sesation instead.

I wonder if Samsung is holding off on the stateside launch of the GS 2 in preparation for the launch of the next iPhone so they can really go head to head?

Really looking forward to the SGS2, but I really hope these are just code names. Right now, they sound like cream puff devices, and not the bad asses I know they will be. I think they should be called the Verizon Droid Dominator, ATT Earthquake, and the Sprint Spitfire...okay, so maybe I'm not the best device-namer either, but my names are a lot better the the "Golden Girl" sounding names they're using now. The "Within"? Really? Lol.

the thing is, i didn't SAY it was the best selling phone of the year. i said it was the BEST smartphone.
your exact words were-
jajajjaja.. u guys make me laugh.... phone of the year??? doubt it..

i am simply proving you wrong with FACTS, something that iFans say we Fandroids don't use very much, so technically you're wrong.

read it.... didn't like it.... so didn't digest it...

I have ben looking at your posts of late and you are by far the smartest poster on here. Of course most people dont care about specs they wouldnt even notice the more speed. You also see how good ios and android are. You should write for pa i enjoy your posts.

And you named yourself after a future bowel movement, which is a category the iPhone 4 falls under. :D

Sorry man, it was too easy.
