Samsung sold 20 million smartphones in 2010, expects to triple sales in 2011
The smartphone portfolio was not the only reason of Samsung Mobile's success – the Samsung Galaxy Tab was also reported to reach its sales target of 1.5 million units last year.
“Our plan for this year is to sell 60 million smartphones and cement ourselves as a global top-tier brand in this segment. It will be important for us to establish stronger positions in regions such as Southeast Asia, China, and Central and South America instead of just relying on advanced markets,” JK Shin noted. In the third quarter of 2010, Samsung was the #1 Android smartphone provider in the US measuring by sales. But it is very popular in other countries as well. At home in S Korea, the Samsung Galaxy S outsold the iPhone and was the first to reach 2 million sold units.
