Last year, Samsung bragged that had passed the 10-million mark with its high-res cameraphone sales. Those include 8-megapixel phones such as the Samsung Innov8 I8510, as well as the Samsung M8800 Pixon.
Today, Samsung makes yet another bold and proud remark, announcing that it has sold well over 10 million touchscreen handsets during 2008. This number today is no doubt still growing.
If one takes the estimated size of the global full-touch screen phone market into account, which according to market research firm Strategy Analytics is around 37 million handsets, it means that Samsung currently owns nearly one-third of that market. Moreover, one in every four touchscreen phones bought was a Samsung.
Europe is where sales happened the most, with over 4 million units sold, while 2.2 million units were sold in the U.S., 1.12 million in Korea and 910,000 in China.
