Samsung executive: More than 10 million Samsung Galaxy S III units have been sold
The Samsung Galaxy S II was long considered to be the best Android phone ever made. That put a lot of pressure on Samsung to produce a sequel that was even better. Based on consumers' response, the Korean based manufacturer succeeded big time. Shin Jong-Kyun, a Samsung senior executive, told reporters that the company has sold more than 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III. No specific sales figures were presented. The device was launched in May for the European and Asian area and was released in the U.S. in June. The handset is now available in 140 countries globally.

"It appears that it (accumulated sales) has exceeded 10 million units," repeated Samsung's head of mobile, J.K. Shin, although it wasn't clear if he was talking about sales to retailers or to end-users. Regardless, it is still a tremendous number and has helped solidify Samsung's position as the word;s top smartphone manufacturer, a title it first took over in the third quarter of  last year. Shin says he expects the number to grow to 20 million units sold by this fall.
