I had no doubts that the Samsung Galaxy S would be a hit in the US, and now Samsung (which has just introduced the Wave 723) officially confirms its success by saying it sold more than 1 million units until now.
Available only via AT&T and T-Mobile at the moment (as Samsung Captivate and Samsung Vibrant), the Galaxy S will also be launched by Sprint (in a QWERTY 4G version called Samsung Epic 4G), Verizon (as Samsung Fascinate), US Cellular and Cellular South.
By the end of 2010, it’s quite possible that Samsung will sell more than 2 million Galaxy S handsets Stateside. If this happens, Samsung should have no problems shipping 10 million units worldwide, as it has planned earlier this year.
All Galaxy S smartphones feature Android 2.1 (upgradeable to Android 2.2 Froyo), 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen displays, 1Ghz processors, and 5MP cameras with 720p video recording.
