One million Galaxy S handsets sold in U.S., says Samsung
Samsung announced today that its Galaxy S handset has been ringing up some impressive sales numbers in the U.S. Since shipments of the device started on July 15th, the Korean based manufacturer has sold 1 million units of the phone. So far, the Android 2.1 powered model is offered through AT&T as the Captivate, and by T-Mobile as the Vibrant.

As we reported, this Tuesday Sprint will offer its variant of the Galaxy S Pro, the Epic 4G. The  "Pro" version of the phone includes a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard. Possibly as soon as next month, Verizon is expected to launch its model of the Samsung phone, which will be called the Fascinate. Versions for U.S. Cellular and Cellular South will also be launched later this year.

With some timely and clever marketing by Samsung, the Galaxy S joins other handsets like the Apple iPhone 4, Motorola DROID X and EVO 4G as phones that have been in heavy demand  for much of the summer. Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Mobile, said, "I am proud of the instant success of the Galaxy S line up and I am very pleased to announce that because of the support of our carrier partners and loyal customers, we have shipped one million Galaxy S devices in the U.S. market. Samsung Mobile looks forward to sharing additional Galaxy S milestones in the future."

disagree...i found the Samsung overlay on the Galaxy S phones to be very user friendly...they have somethings built in that the Sense UI doesnt that were very helpful...However, they need a good digital clock...i dont wanna download a "free digital clock" widget...

agreed, why did Samsung not include a user-friendly cut and paste like htc sense?

I had no problem with the UI - but I still like to mod and have tried SAMSET - I settled on HACKeclair and found it to be the most friendliest ROM, making the UI even speedier - added EVO and circle battery and phone lokos and runs great - it comes with a digial clock app that can run in extremely low light....
