With 1 million already purchased, Samsung says it will sell 10 million Galaxy S units
With HTC, Motorola and Apple all battling for cellphone supremacy, Samsung has managed to get involved in the battle thanks to its high-end Android device, the Galaxy S. Samsung is eating its own cooking here with its own 1GHz Hummingbird processor under the hood and equipping the phone with a 4 inch Super AMOLED display-the same display that Samsung produces for other manufacturers who put it on phones like the HTC Droid Incredible (as long as supplies last, of course, which they haven't). The Korean based firm has sold 300,000 Galaxy S devices in South Korea and 1,000,000 worldwide. In the States, each one of the top four major carriers will launch their own version. Yesterday, T-Mobile released the Samsung Vibrant and this Sunday, AT&T will launch the Captivate. Sprint's variant will be a 4G version of the Galaxy S Pro which includes a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard and is named the Epic 4G. As we reported, Verizon's model, the Samsung Fascinate, will apparently be launched last as Big Red is focusing attention right now on its just released (and sold out) Motorola DROID X. Like the iconic McDonald's signs, perhaps Samsung could place a similar display at its corporate headquarters that reads, "Galaxy S handset: Over 1 million served"

Saw the phone on 7/14 a day ahead of 7/15 launch and all I can say was, WOW, this phone is amazing. The screen is so thin and bright... just brilliant. The weight was incredibly light... feather light... and I am not joking.. omg Cannot wait to get this phone today~ But where is the fact that Samsung actually said about selling 10 Million of this unit eventually??

I plan on trading in my ARIA for a CAPTIVATE - that phone is more powerful then the DROID X, EVO G, or NEXUS...check out the site for proof: http://www.androidcentral.com/att-samsung-captivate-benchmarks-and-graphicsgaming-test And, no I am not spamming, or not intentionally doing so. Aria is a great phone, and I hope to trade it in if the company store gets it on 7/18 (may take a miracle). 1 GHZ processor, a great gaming device, and 16GB on board memory made me change my mind - that and SWYPE and the fact that it will be a cinch to root.

sure, there will always be a better phone out - heck, we all thought EVO 4G was the bomb a few mnths ago - not anymore - still a a great phone - the front cam, flash thing is not a major deal breaker for me - but would be nice and at some point I will look for those qualities in a smartphone....CAPTIVATE does well for me for now...just like ARIA wetted by appetite for a mnth, lol.

The Samsung Epic 4G has both of those.

Major error in the article: "a 4 inch Super AMOLED display-the same display that Samsung produces for other manufacturers who put it on phones like the HTC Droid Incredible (as long as supplies last, of course, which they haven't)." No other company has the privileges of the Samsung made Super-AMOLED display, the HTC Droid does not utilize the same display as the Galaxy S, it is exclusive for Samsung only for a period of time. A display that it does manufacture for other companies is the AMOLED display not Super-AMOLED!

Yeah the S AMOLED is a huge difference! I have a N1 and it is already a super clear screen but when I saw the Vibrant at T-Mobile I was shocked at how much brighter and clear the phone was. Looks like Samsung was hiding their best technology for themselves :p
