Samsung sells 100 million Samsung Galaxy S series phones
Like two ships passing in the dark, the Apple iPhone 5seems to have lost momentum, explaining why Apple has significantly cut orders for parts to build its iconic smartphone. The other ship, the S.S Samsung, seems to be moving in the right direction with not one, but two sizzling hot devices in the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II. But it is the former that is being celebrated on Monday, as the flagship Android handset is part of the Samsung Galaxy S series that has sold over 100 million units.

Just two years and seven months after the first Samsung Galaxy S entered the market, Samsung has made the line extremely popular with those looking for an alternative to the Apple iPhone. And as we told you on Saturday, the teens say that the Apple iPhone is out and the Samsung Galaxy S III is in. As we noted, part of that comes from the way Samsung's commercials position the iPhone as a device for older people while the features on the Samsung Galaxy S III appear fresh and new.

The Samsung Galaxy S sold 10 million phones in its first year and the Samsung Galaxy S II has sold 40 million units, with the number of units sold doubling since February. Meanwhile, by November Samsung had sold 30 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Right now, 190,000 of the latter device are being rung up daily. At that pace, over 69 million units of the Samsung Galaxy S III would be sold in one year. It all adds up to the top position for Samsung in the global smartphone market.
