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."
