Samsung Galaxy S II: 3 million orders up

Samsung Galaxy S II: 3 million orders upThe Samsung Galaxy S II, the dual-core superstar we got our hands on back at Mobile World Congress, is turning out to be one of the most popular smartphones of 2011.

That's not based so much on actual handsets that have been sold, however, as the Galaxy S II has only just made its long-awaited appearance on the shelves. But throw in pre-orders, says Samsung, and we're talking an impressive three million units.

To be fair, two million of those have come from Korea alone, including 120,000 actual sales on its official launch day, but the Galaxy S II has clearly attracted plenty of interest elsewhere too.

And we're not surprised: a 4.3in Super AMOLED display boasting a 480 x 800 resolution, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and full HD video recording and playback lead the way on a hugely impressive feature set.

Samsung says it's hoping to shift 10 million Galaxy S IIs before the end of the year, so the current figures are definitely a step in the right direction.

It's certainly the best phone we've seen so far this year, but the mobile industry moves quickly, so with more than half the year still ahead of us we wouldn't be counting our chickens just yet if we were in Samsung's shoes.

"we wouldn't be counting our chickens just yet if we were in Samsung's shoes"

Such a pathetic biased thing to say. If this was a phone by Apple I'm sure you would be reaching to the sky's proclaiming this to be the best phone EVER and no one will beat it for a long time, and yet again Apple have proven they are the masters in smartphone technology.

You clearly have absolute no idea what you are talking about. Anyone can make a website these days and post this junk. Go back to your cave already.

Steven 64 LOL Have you noticed the amount of Android-related articles and debates on mobot? Are you seriously suggesting pro-iPhone bias?
The point is absolutely valid: It IS May 2011. To say the SGSII may not be the bestest phone anymore come December, is not bias. It IS reason.
The Android handset market is on meth... they'd need coke to come down, if you know what I mean. Not to mention non-Android devices: Heck, the hp Pre 3 will have a 1.4gHz processor and webOS is much less resource hungry than Android. And the Mansion is in the works;
we could probably spend all day listing devices that are already announced/confirmed/leakedwith better specs (and a better 'pedigree') than Samsung's
