Samsung will likely beat its Q4 sales estimates thanks to the Galaxy line
A Samsung executive said today that the company is on its way to pass the 2011 sales target, but didn't specify by how much, and what the new target is likely to be.

"We are pinning high hopes...on achieving sales higher than our previous plan", was the executive's comment at a press conference for the launch of the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE in Korea.

Samsung is definitely an overachiever these days, and this is due for the large part to its Galaxy line, as the executive noted, while the last quarterly results proved the Galaxy product mix right.

is very simple.. is easy to beat expectations when you set a low expectation.. like me.. I have high expectations of you... and you never meet them.. so i will lower them... just for you....

He clarified on another post by stating that he posts for himself. You know how little kids believe that if they can't see you, you can't see them? Gallito believes that if he sees it in writing it's true. He just has to write it himself because no one else is crazy enough to put that s**t to paper.

So to see is to believe...... In that case I dont see taco's or gallito's brains existing or functioning properly... so i dont believe that their brains exist or functions properly too... is that right???

who said it wasnt the highest selling android on major carriers? when was the last time major carriers released individual sales numbers gallito? they DONT. All those numbers we see are from seperate companies that make best guesses. How do i know? Because the SGS1 was the top selling single android phone all time when it broke the 10 million sold mark after 9 months. The SGS2 broke 3 million sold in just the first month.. in just korea and has been THE best seller in almost every country it has been in since it was launched. When you look at european sales averages, for many countries the SGS2 was outselling the i4 by a 10 to 1 margin. Outside of america, Apple has very little presence compared to android I can tell you from personal experience, the #1 phone in my store is the SGS2. The #2 phone in my store is the SGS1. There is a reason the SGS1 hasnt become a "free phone" even after an amazing 14 months or so since launch.. its continually a top performer. Its STILL 150 before rebate. Yet you keep trying to say that all android phones are free after only 3 months. Can you show me when the evo, droid, droidX, SGS, SGS2, and every other top end android phone became free please. And do it in a nice pretty graph so we can all understand it.

Wtf.... since when did you have a ... store?... anyways... Remix... please... the only reason the SGSII sold well it was because the iphone was delayed this year... the reign of the Galaxy clones.. ended Oct 14... when the king of cellphone took the throne... the Galaxies are scare that the Nexus doesnt want to come out and play...

the GS2 is selling and doing well. whenever you see your regular teenager using it, or your soccer mom, the phone is moving and becoming popular.

key word here is "but didn't specify by how much"... they are even copying Apple strategie that are selling so their phones are in high demand.. but even with the Galaxy line in white... wont surpass expectations... again for the people that just join... key word...... "but didn't specify by how much".....
