Samsung announced that it had sold 10 million of its Android-powered Galaxy S Smartphones. The milestone was reached less than seven months after the device was launched, in June 2010. According to a handy map, the bulk of Galaxy S units – four million, to be exact – were shifted in North America, while 2.5 million phones were sold in Europe and two million in Asia.
JK Shin, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, said:
“The Galaxy S is the result of our 22 year heritage in the mobile industry. It’s the realization of our concept of “the Smart Life” – we wanted to makes users’ lives more convenient, more exciting, and more integrated. Today’s milestone shows that we have succeeded: 10 million Galaxy S users around the world are living the Smart Life.”
