5 million Galaxy S units sold make it a cash cow for Samsung
And this is exactly what is happening to Samsung with the Galaxy S. Backed up by an extensive marketing campaign on all fronts, the Super AMOLED, 1GHz Hummingbird Android handset has earned some street cred today.
Samsung said that it has sold more than five million units worldwide, two of which in the US, and a million in Korea. Coupled with the successful sales of the bada flagship Samsung Wave, these will surely result in a nice addition to Samsung's bottom line in the Q4 financial report. Moreover, the Galaxy S will be entering the Japanese market later this month, with the Galaxy Tab coming there in November.
You research, innovate, come up with a product to wow consumers, and back it up with extensive marketing campaign to reap the benefits - nothing wrong with old school economics.
