200,000 Samsung Galaxy S Android phones sold in Korea within 10 days

Since the very first day it was announced, the Samsung Galaxy S was bound to become one of this year’s most successful Android smartphones.

Available as of last month in select markets, the Galaxy S doesn’t disappoint: it was likely sold in a lot more than 1 million units until now. I’m saying this because in South Korea, where the handset was launched on June 24, it has already reached sales of more than 200,000 units.

In comparison, Apple sold 800,000 iPhone 3GS units in Korea in about eight months. Of course, sales will most probably be higher after Apple launches the iPhone 4 in the country (the new iPhone was sold in more than 1.7 million units in the first week-end of availability).

The Samsung Galaxy S will be available in 110 countries around the world by the end of this year. Samsung’s betting not only on Asian and European markets, but also on North America, where different versions of the smartphone will be launched via major carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Bell.

With features that include a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, 1GHz processor, HD video recording and Android 2.1 (soon to become 2.2 Froyo), the Galaxy S could become Samsung’s most successful smartphone ever.

    Didnt you just read that 800,000 iPhones were sold in Korea? Apple is an AMERICAN company.

    So you argument is not valid.

    Also, Galaxy S is already being sold in Europe and some parts of Asia. North American debut is imminent.
