Samsung Galaxy S US sales hit 3 million
Sales of Samsung's Galaxy S series phones grew steadily to hit the 3 million mark on the US market since their launch in July, CMO of Samsung USA, Paul Golden, has confirmed. The news comes despite the shortage in supply of Super AMOLED displays, a feature all phones of the lineup share.

Sales in the USA account for almost half of the overall 7 million sales of Galaxy S devices. Samsung offers the phones on all four major US carriers and is preparing to launch its latest addition to the series, the Samsung Continuum, on November 18th for Verizon. The launch was reportedly pushed back from the previously announced date of November 11th. The new addition stands apart with its secondary “ticker” display. We got our hands on one of these and here you can find our initial thoughts on just how exciting the Continuum is.

The Galaxy S is at the core of the growing market share of Samsung in the USA. Another major contributor to Samsung's success was South Korea where the lineup has sold 2 million units. Keeping the pace for Samsung however still depends on when the company will be able to overcome the shortage in Super AMOLED display production.
