South Korean manufacturer Samsung is typically quite *open/boastful (*delete as appropriate) when it comes to sales landmarks. Recently we heard that the Samsung Galaxy S III hit 30 million, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 managed five million sales in two months.
The latest figure is easily the most impressive to date, with the combined Samsung Galaxy S series hitting 100,000,000. Holy mother of f…
The landmark is reached (“from the supply side”) just 2 years and 7 months after the original Samsung Galaxy S popped up - in May 2010.
The humble Samsung Galaxy S II has shifted 40 million units in 20 months, but its performance is completely eclipsed by its successor.
The Samsung Galaxy S III hit the 40 million mark after just 7 months, with average daily sales of 190,000 units.
Making up the numbers are variants including the Samsung Galaxy S III mini, Samsung Galaxy S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S Advance… and so on.
The rumour mill suggests (based on pretty much nothing) that Google might be concerned about Samsung’s Android dominance, while Sammo is tipped to shift a chunk of its focus towards Tizen this year.
