Samsung Galaxy S outsells the iPhone in S Korea
The Samsung Galaxy S is not only a huge success for the Korean manufacturer, but also a great promoter of Android. It might be the first Android device to reach sales of 10 million units worldwide as just a week ago sales went over 9.3 million devices. Apple's iPhone 4 was still way ahead, however, with some 14 million units sold until the end of October only.
Samsung has also completed its ambitious target of 1 million sold Galaxy Tabs. The 7-inch tablet recorded robust sales of 100,000 units in South Korea only.

At least Korea is smart enough to realize the iPhone is SHIT.

now if only the could get the firmware updates out timely. of course with sales figures like these, what would be the incentive? people keep buying them anyway

I have to rely on XDA for my 2.2 and 2.3 updates....

Thanks to Samsung.... they launched another iphone like device and anyone can own it in any country without jailbreak hussles.
Though I use iphone, I'm fed up of unlocking, jailbreking and reinstalling software. copying files from my pc to iphone is still a tough task for me!
