Samsung Galaxy S III Sales Top 10 Million

The company announced that it has sold more than 10 million devices within two months after launch, translating into about 190,000 phones sold per day. Since the iPhone 5 is not expected to arrive until September or October, Samsung should have another few months of decent sales.

According to a report published by Yonhap News Agency, the phone could hit total shipments of 40 million units, which would not only be a record for Samsung, but would turn the Galaxy S III into the most successful Android phone so far.

Of course, the S III trails Apple' iPhone. The company said that it sold 35.1 million iPhones in the first quarter of this year, even if there was no information how many of those phones were 3GS, 4 and 4S models. Analysts, however, generally believe that more than 90 percent of sales are 4S models, translating into about 31.5 milllion 4S models for the 3-month period.

    lol like you need to wait, modders are all over the world improving everything even before launch... its not like kids apple that cant be modify if Ouija Jobs doesnt approve it... i just wish that samsung spends so much on blatant publicity like apple that pays to put their logo everywhere in movies and things!

    Meanwhile all iPhone users are stressing out over their "shrinking" connector! C'mon iPhone users, we'll be happy to put aside our differences when you make the switch, now is as good a time as ever!

    The battery sucks in comparison to the MAXX. That's all I care about, even though the S3 is otherwise, the better phone. The battery still sucks in comparison. I stop there.

    dont like apple much, think too highly of themselves. stop with the legal battle and do battle on product improvements.

    i own an s3 btw, but we also have some apple devices at home.

    how old is apple's icon btw? the app icons i mean, not the actual apple logo

    but you have to realize the battery on the s3 is replaceable/upgradable. i dont personally own an s3, but i do have the s2, and i can tell you that there are 3800 mAh batteries which sell with custom back covers even for the carrier specific sprint version that i have. going by this i would expect third party batteries to be readily available for about 20-30 dollars for the s3.

    Does this mean it did better than the Lumia 900?
