Three million Samsung Galaxy S II units already requested by carriers worldwide
It just seems that carriers worldwide agree with that assessment, since word broke out they have preordered about 3 million units of the good stuff already. Samsung says this is one of the highest preorder numbers they've had for shipping to carriers, and that is equally as impressive, considering how many cheap feature phones the company sometimes spits out.
We undoubtedly have to thank the marketing effort behind its predecessor - the Samsung Galaxy S - which was launched in 120 countries on 140 carriers as well, trailblazing the path to stardom for the Samsung Galaxy S II. Of course, three million is the number that will be shipped to carriers - how many of those will be bought by end clients remains to be seen, but observing the excitement that the handset generates, we wouldn't doubt Samsung's goal to sell at least 10 million Galaxy S II phones by year-end.
We sincerely hope some of these three millions units have been requested by the big four (soon to be big three) US carriers, so that we can have the most compelling Android handset this season, and maybe even until the holidays, as soon as possible. So, Sammy, please stop sending the Galaxy S II to Mt. Everest, and hurry up with the good ol' ground shipping!

Thank the better advertising, the fix of past mistakes and the fact the the company is sticking to a solid name instead of 5 or 6 different ones

Well if you do live in a 3rd world country, then you should be worried about how to feed yourself or family instead of trying to buy the latest phone on the market.
Reminds me of houses falling apart but yet they have like 3 tv dishes on the roof, who cares about putting food on the table as long as I have my tv, that is just sad.

You might think that all citizens of emerging economies countries live in terrible conditions,(certainly better than the homeless ones that live in carton boxes on the major cities of the world) , but the fact is that there lots of person who live in a adequate situation, and for explample here in Bolivia, one of the best selling phones is the iphone 4 at 1200 dollars each (unlocked) , so we will get the samsung galaxy 2 soon , and we will buy it.
And this cellphone will kick iphones 4 , 5 ass

Well. Looks like Samsung is going to show up everyone in the phone department. While I like their products, I'll keep sticking with Motorola, or maybe HTC.

Samsung is going to overtake Apple very soon with Android OS.

This isn't going to be the best Android phone of 2011, it's going to be the best SMART PHONE of 2011! At least unless the SGS3 is released in 2011 in the fall, as rumored.
I currently own the Evo and HTC seems to be resting on its laurels. The new crop of high end HTC phones can't keep up with this one.
I'm still waiting for Moto to release their super Android phone, but I doubt they'll be able to top this. Plus, they lock their bootloaders which is a major drawback in my book.
