With Samsung being the world’s second largest handset manufacturer, it’s no wonder its touchscreen phones are sold in millions of units.
As we already reported, Samsung shipped more than 10 million such phones in 2008 only, having a quarter of the global touchscreen market.
Now we’re hearing that the most successful touchscreen phone from the South Korean company is the Samsung F480 TouchWiz.
Launched back in May 2008, at the same time with the new TouchWiz UI, the handset was sold in about 5 million units until now, and 500,000 units are still being shipped each month, all over the world.
F480 apart, Samsung should expect high sales for its 2009 touchscreen phones too, since handsets like T-Mobile’s Memoir, Omnia HD and the Ultra Touch S8300 can definitely attract lots and lots of customers. And let’s not forget that Samsung will soon come up with at least one Android smartphone – which will surely have a touchscreen display.
