Samsung sells 5 million Galaxy S units, launches the handset in Japan together with the Galaxy Tab
While announcing the upcoming launch of the Galaxy S Android smartpohne in Japan, Samsung said that worldwide sales of the device have passed the 5 million mark.
In Japan, the Galaxy S will be sold via NTT DoCoMo starting October, coming with Android 2.2 Froyo from the beginning (unlike the European and North American versions, which were shipped with Android 2.1).
The Japanese Galaxy S will still feature Samsung’s Super AMOLED display, so production has not been halted after all.
In November, NTT DoCoMo will launch the Galaxy Tab tablet, too (which also has Froyo on-board, of course). No word yet on the prices the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab will have in Japan.
