Samsung Galaxy S series hits 100,000,000

Samsung Galaxy S series hits 100,000,000South 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.

Ridonculous - Samsung will not shift focus away towards Tizen. Samsung learned through Bada that quality means very little. Bada lacked apps. Boom bada gone. Irrelevant that Bada 2 was a much greater leap forward than any of Google's incremental upgrades.
Tizen won't catch up with iOS and Android in terms of apps quantity before 12 noon, 2032...

Hey! I had this phone, it was good for its time. I had many an enjoyable time using this as a test dummy for custom ROMS.

Really? I had one, too. It was horrible. Laggy beyond belief, and a screen tackier than flypaper... I hated it.
