T-Mobile's all-time number one seller is the Samsung Galaxy S III
A tweet from the nation's fourth largest carrier has announced that the all-time best-selling device in the history of T-Mobile is...the Samsung Galaxy S III. Does this come as a surprise to anyone? After all, the phone had already sold over 20 million units in its first 100 days. Perhaps the only surprising thing, which is also quite impressive, is that the phone has been on the market for less than four months. The actual date that it became available to T-Mobile customers was June 21st of this year.

It is not as though T-Mobile hasn't had some awesome phones in the past. Of course, there was the current champ's predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S II which at one time was called the "Best Android phone ever," a title it held until the sequel was launched. And in the era when a 3.5 inch screen was considered "generous", the HTC HD2 was a T-Mobile exclusive in the states with 4.3 inches of Windows Mobile goodness.

There will be those who will note the absence of the Apple iPhone from T-Mobile's history and wonder if the absence of Apple's iconic smartphone would have made a difference. While that might seem a legitimate question, in this day and age when switching one carrier for another is as easy as changing breakfast cereals, those who want an Apple iPhone badly enough can leave T-Mobile for a carrier that offers it.

By the time the Samsung Galaxy S III is retired to the dreaded EOL list, it will continue to set a new T-Mobile record with each sale. The only real question is whether the Samsung Galaxy S IV will surpass whatever final tally the Galaxy S III earns.
