While it may not be 4.3 million “sold” in just one weekend, Samsung has announced that they’ve “shipped” 10 million Galaxy S III devices in two months. Regardless of shipped or sold, that’s an impressive number when you consider the amount of carriers that Samsung delivered this device to since it has been released. In the U.S. alone, the Galaxy S III is available on all four major networks, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, but the GSIII is also available on U.S. Cellular too. While the only “sales” data we have is from Shin Jong-kyun, the President of Samsung’s Information Technology and Mobile Communication Division, who said that the Galaxy S III is averaging about 190,000 unit sold each day, which should put them at about 10 million unit sold by the end of July.
Samsung may retain the title of the largest smartphone manufacturer with impressive stats like those, but when it comes to individual unit sales, they still have a ways to go, if they plan to topple Apple’s 35 million iPhones sold in just one quarter. But if Samsung continues on the same patch as they have been with devices like the Galaxy S III, they may catch up pretty quick.
