Samsung Galaxy S III Reaches 30 Million Phones Sold

Samsung has announced that sales for its flagship Galaxy S III smartphone has reached 30 million.

The Android-powered smartphone, which only launched back in May, reached the milestone figure last week, according to an announcement made on Samsung Poland's Twitter account.

Less than two months ago, the device's sales exceeded 20 million units worldwide. Samsung stressed that it expected that figure to reach 30 million before 2013 arrived, so the firm still has two months left to sell a few more million during the holiday season.

The Galaxy S III, which has become one of the best-selling Android devices of all time, considerably contributed to Samsung's record profits of $7.4 billion this year.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II, meanwhile, has shipped over 3 million units worldwide after just a month on sale.

    Apple fudged up the transition from Home computers to PCs back in the 80s and I have a feeling history will repeat itself with smartphones and tablets.

    I operate a small IT firm and we are getting complaints from iPad users left and right that their device can not access many of the sites we host. Usually media heavy sites using flash players etc.
    These folks just don't get it that Apple with their anti flash stance is putting themseves in a position they have been before. Apple against the mass market. They will loose out again. And thre is no S.J. around to fix things this time around.

    Or you could update your site to not use a piece of shit like flash and move to a more modern and sleek design.

    As much as I hate Apple, Jobs (who led the anti-flash stance) was right. Flash is an abomination that needs to die, and right now its days are numbered. On top of the numerous security and performance issues with Flash, Adobe has abandoned support for Android and Linux, and sites such as YouTube are already transitioning to new standards such as HTML5.
