Samsung has sold 2 million Galaxy S smartphones in Korea, more than Apple’s iPhone
In just over a year since it first became available in South Korea in November 2009, the Apple iPhone series has sold in a total of around 1.8 million handsets.
Meanwhile, Samsung has announced that it has sold more than 2 million Galaxy S Android-powered smartphones in its home country in the six months that have passed since its release there. The Galaxy S is the first smartphone to have reached the 2 million sold milestone in Korea.
The Galaxy S series may also be the first Android device/family to reach 10 million units sold worldwide, as the total sales passed 9.3 million this past Friday. It certainly looks like it’s only a matter of time. Clearly, people love the Galaxy S, but the 10 million milestone will also be reached with the contribution of Samsung’s extensive distribution deals – this phone was sold by dozens, if not hundreds of operators worldwide.
For comparison, the iPhone 4 has seen sales of 14 million units from its launch this summer and until the end of October.
Samsung has also said that the Galaxy Tab has reached 100,000 units sold in Korea, and a million worldwide.
