Samsung sells 100 million Samsung Galaxy S series phones

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.

Well speaking of smartphones, Nokia 5230(the touch screen symbian )alone allegedly sold 150 million units. Which makes it by far the BEST SELLING SMARTPHONE EVER. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki
See that, Lumias?

Ah, just wait. If Samsung does something like what Google did with Nexus 4 - unlocked & inexpensive - they could even rival Nokia 1100 ... especially now that unlimited service is getting so popular with no-contract phones. Check it: PenniesOverDollars.com

They deserve every bit of their success :) both my GALAXY S2 and S3 have been such a joy to use, they are true workhorses with incredible features, great UI and simple yet user friendly design, not to mention powerful and extremely versatile.

My father is one of the early owners of the Galaxy S1 , he also bought the galaxy s2 . But instead of continue with the GS3 (because the leap from s2 to s3 isnt as big aa from GS1 to GS2 ) he bought an iPhone 5 and he is pretty pleased with it . I am now using his S2

I can remember like yesterday when i got my new galaxy s on its release date. I was so amazed how clear and beautiful the amoled screen was. The movie aviator was preloaded and just looked amazing, the funny part is everyone would ask me, you have the new i phone. LOL, upgraded to my lovely gs2, fast forward to today and now i have my beautiful white gs3 and all three phones still working like a champ. Great job samsung

Christ, I remember what a huge goddamn deal it was for Motorola to sell a single million of the original Droid in less time than the original iPhone did. I also remember when iFans would crow triumphantly that Apple was the best because they sold more phones than everyone else. These are truly incredible numbers.

The real success of these 2 phones is how many networks carry them! I mean you can get an unlocked version of each, plug in a no-contract SIM card and away you go w/the most economic, unlimited plan available today! Which one? Check it: PenniesOverDollars.com

I'm not surprised that S3 would sell like hotcakes, in my class, 3 of them got s3. And almost everywhere I go in the city, I would see an s3.
