Samsung Galaxy Prevail leads the way for Samsung in the U.S. from June 2010-2012
Thanks to the Apple v. Samsung patent trial, both firms have been forced to open up their books for examination, something both are usually quite reluctant to do. Apple and Samsung both filed some interesting info with the court on Thursday. Looking at U.S. sales from June 2010 through June 2012, the Korean based carrier revealed that they sold 21.25 million phones to bring in $7.5 billion. At the same time, 1.4 million Samsung GALAXY Tab and Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tablets were sold accounting for $644 million in revenue.

During the two year period from June 2010 to June 2012, Samsung's  number one seller in the States based on units sold was the Samsung Galaxy Prevail which rang up 2.25 million handsets. That was followed by the 1.89 million units of the Samsung Epic 4G that were purchased, and the 1.67 million units sold of the Sprint version of the Samsung Galaxy S II (Samsung Epic 4G Touch). When talking dollars, it was the Samsung Epic 4G that ruled the roost in those 24 months, lining Samsung's coffers with $855 million. Because many Samsung models were exclusive to one U.S. carrier, like the Epic 4G, the bottom line is that many of them did quite well.

Apple's figures revealed that from 2007 through the second quarter of 2012, the Cupertino based firm sold 85 million Apple iPhone units in the States which brought in $50 billion in revenue. During the same period, 46 million Apple iPod touches were sold worth $10.3 billion in revenue. Since the product's launch in 2010, Apple has sold 34 million Apple iPad tablets, adding $19 billion in sales.

Both sides have had to release information that they normally would jealously guard. Apple has turned over internal customer surveys for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad and has asked the court to keep the information private. So far, Judge Lucy Koh has denied that request and Apple is appealing. Giant tech firms like Ericsson, Intel, RIM, Nokia and Microsoft have asked the court to keep certain information sealed that they provided the court, although Reuters America is trying to get that information publicly revealed.

After two days of recess on Wednesday and Thursday, the trial resumes Friday with more testimony from Apple's expert witnesses.
