Samsung Says Galaxy S III Sales will Surpass 10 Million by July
The Samsung Galaxy S III is all the rage right now — and rightfully so. I got my T-Mobile (T999) a couple days ago and I’ve been tickled pink ever since. This phone is absolutely amazing and I’m looking forward to doing a full review for you guys in the coming weeks, once I’ve had time to get fully comfortable with it.
If you’re wondering exactly how high the demand for the S3 is, prepare to have your jaw dropped. Sammy is reporting it expects to ship worldwide numbers to the tune of 10 million by July, which will be roughly 30 days after its launch.
Does this come as a surprise to us? Not in the least. By the end of July, nearly 300 carriers around the globe will offer the device, so if you’re not a customer of a carrier that has the Galaxy S III, it might be time to consider switching.
Last year, Samsung became the world’s biggest mobile-phone maker after knocking Nokia off its throne. This is not to be confused with the top smartphone maker, as Apple still holds down that title thanks to its success with the iPhone. This year, Samsung looks to change all of that by doubling its smartphone sales this year by offing about 200 million phones. With numbers moving along quite nicely for them already, I’m guessing the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note 2 just might be enough to help the do it.
Congrats on the success, Samsung. You made a brilliant device and I hope you reap all the rewards you deserve because of it!
