Samsung executive: 9 million pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III

does not include the U.S. market where the phone is not expected to launch until next month. Once you add in the States, the sequel is going to be putting up some very impressive numbers. The anonymous Samsung official said that the pre-orders for the Galaxy S III came from 290 mobile operators from 145 countries throughout the world. The pre-order total compares with 1 million units pre-ordered for the Samsung Galaxy S when it was launched in 2010, and 3 million units pre-ordered for the Samsung Galaxy S II last year.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is set to rollout globally at the end of this month with the aforementioned U.S. launch set for sometime in June. The U.S. is one of three markets that will get an LTE compatible version of the phone with the other two locations, Japan and Korea, getting their units sometime this summer. While the international version of the phone is powered by a quad-core 1.4GHz exynos processor, the U.S. bound models will most likely feature a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The Verizon variant of the phone was apparently tested on the Nenamark Benchmark website and had the S4 under the hood.

I was reading on gsm arena about this same thing and saying that its no where near the pre orders of the iphone 4s but ermmmm are they not forgetting apple only have one product on ios each year. its not like you have many different mobiles running on ios like android. In the top segment you have the sgs3, htc one x, htc one s, you have the galaxy nexus, the galaxy note, upcoming lg optimus 4x, the sony xperia s those are just examples there many different top end, middle end and low end devices to choose from so ofcourse that is going to affect the sales of one particular android handset. Say now you just had the sgs series as the only phone availble on android each year, it would outsell the iphone of each year, so when people boast about how much a iphone is selling each year I do not understand it because if you had other phones running ios i am sure all the sales wouldnt just go to the iphone. Oh and for all the people who disagree with what I am saying, I d c because you know it is the truth there are more people for android than there is for ios.

@TROLL.ISAHA, I dont know what has led you to jump to that assumption because I have seen many women with the one x, the galaxy note, htc sensation XL and I have seen many women come in carphone warehouse when i pre ordered mine and pre ordered the white version of the sgs3.
