Samsung Galaxy S III busts the 10m mark

Samsung Galaxy S III busts the 10m markAround a month ago, Martin screamed from the Mobot rafters: Samsung Galaxy S III will go past 10m units sold in July.

Now we’re hearing that – you guessed it – the Samsung Galaxy S III has gone past 10m units sold in July. That guy’s a freakin’ prophet.

The news comes via AFP, which reports that Samsung has punted (yes, that’s sold as opposed to shipped) a whopping 10 million units of the Galaxy S III since it went on sale back in May.

AFP quotes JK Shin, head of Samsung’s mobile division, who sprayed a bottle of champagne over reporters while yelling: “It appears that it has exceeded 10 million units."

That figure was reached despite early manufacturing problems with the pebble blue edition of the Galaxy S III, estimated to have cost Samsung two million in initial sales.

More recently, we’ve heard that the Samsung Galaxy S III is tipped to break the 15 million barrier in Q3. Goodness gracious.

I haven't yet seen an S3 "in the wild", though I don't doubt that Samsung have sold over 10 million of them, if your contract is coming to an end, it's the phone to get.

I saw the 1st one in the wild yesterday.
And I agree - for an Android fan it is the phone to get. What other high-end device is there?
iOS lovers are now probably waiting for the iPhone 5, a few WP users or wp-curious people will be waiting for Apollo... Of those some may cave in and get an SGS3 instead.
The Android competition? The One X has failed to beat Samsung. And HTC go from quietly brilliant to odd to bizarre when it comes to OS updates. Now they sell half of Beats Audio - there was a 'next big thing', eh?
I think Samsung have taken the Apple spot within the Android 'ecosystem'... their flagships are the Android-iPhones.
