Samsung says it has sold 2 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S II in Korea
The other day we reported that the Samsung Galaxy S II had sold 5 million units in the first 85 days on sale. And that, of course, doesn't include a U.S. market that is just dying to get its hands on the phone. Already considered by many to be the best Android phone ever made, the Galaxy S II is known for its outrageously high Quadrant Benchmark scores.

Samsung announced on Monday that in its home market of  Korea, the Galaxy S II has sold 2 million units in just 73 days. As a matter of comparison, that is about twice the pace that its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S, sold at in Korea. That device ended up selling 3.2 million units, a number that the Galaxy S II is expected to beat easily. Once the phone is launched in all of its planned destinations, it is expected that 10 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S II will be purchased.

As we reported, Verizon is expected to be the first U.S. carrier to offer the device which will be known as the Samsung Function. We could see this released as soon as August 14th.

That is pretty amazing, to say the least! I'm surprised though as to why the US was the last to get.

Perhaps it takes so long in the states due to the changes to the phone for each carrier. Then again it took ages for the Atrix to arrive to Europe for reasons that ellude me. Well that was actually good news for me, cause I was considering getting the Atrix, but the SGS2 came out earlier so I got that. Hope this phone breaks all sales records, it deserves it.

i think the delay on the US release is due to the suing being made by apple. they have to make the necessary changes to go around the copyright etc. ive been enjoying my sgs2 for a month now... and damn i dont regret my choice one bit.. this is just the best phone there is ryt now

That's not really that much for the "rest of the world" after all this time.
