Samsung has reportedly sold more than 10 million “Galaxy S” within just seven months after the device was launched. Initially it was reported that the handset has surpassed the 9.3 million mark, putting the company in touching distance of its 10million unit goal. Samsung was selling approximately 40,000 units per day. North America became strongest with over 4 million units sold, then 2.5 million in Europe and over 2 million in South Korea. This is really an impressive start for any electronic company.ARTICLE CONTINUED BELOW
Samsung’s prediction of 10 million in sales was initially met with doubt, as the company had only 7 months to achieve the target, but it proved itself the best later on. The company not only managed to hit its sales target, but also became a major part in the international smartphone market. The Samsung Galaxy S boasts a 1GHz processor, 16GB of memory and an ultra crisp Super AMOLED screen.
In addition to Samsung Galaxy S, the company is going forward to launch Galaxy Tab tablet. Samsung is also supposed to unveil the Galaxy Player which is a touchscreen multimedia device in the mode of the iPod match. In order to compete with Apple, Samsung offers a preloaded Media Hub with movies and television shows. Samsung can easily be foreseen to become the number one mobile manufacturer worldwide. Now it remains to be seen whether Samsung can translate its early profits into sustainable long term momentum.
