Samsung’s Android based Galaxy S goes Platinum with US sales of 1 million units in 45 days

Posted on August 31, 2010


A smokin’ hot processor, great looking screen, and a great camera- all for a couple hundred bucks! I know everyone is looking at the iPhone success- but watch out for Samsung, BTW, have you heard about BADA? Hmmm.

Samsung’s latest Android-based device – the Galaxy S, which was released in the US on AT&T and on T-Mobile, has proved a big success and is doing superb business in the US. The Galaxy S smartphone has already made its mark at global level and it seems that the smartphone is poised for similar success in the US as 1 million units are sold in just 45 days. The Galaxy S comes equipped with 4-inch Super-AMOLED display, which is produced by Samsung. It runs on a 1GHz Hummingbird processor.

South Korean electronics giant announced that they’ve sold 1 million T-Mobile Vibrants and AT&T Captivates in 45 days in the US. The figures clearly show that Android’s success is not limited to Verizon alone and Google’s OS has the potential to do well even with other carriers.

Samsung launched the device on August 15th with almost no marketing from the AT&T, the exclusive carrier of the iPhone in the US.

The Asian firm also launched the smartphone on T-Mobile, the smallest carrier in the US. T-Mobile spent some money in advertising their version, called Vibrant, but the network provider does not boasts of a large customer base.

Both AT&T and T-Mobile priced the 16GB Galaxy S smartphones for $200. Samsung succeeded in selling a million Galaxy S smartphones in three weeks globally and mind it: the device was not launched in the US at that time.

Apple sold three million iPhone 4s globally in 22 days. The super success of Galaxy S showed that the smartphone market has got one more device and the competition is getting tougher and tougher.
