Samsung Galaxy S sells over 9.3 million handsets across the globe: Marching forward to beat the 10 million mark!

December 24, 2010, By Shawn Wagnon

Verizon might be desperate to have the iPhone in its array of smartphones since apparently AT&T sold four times as many iPhones as Android handsets were sold by Verizon. But, despite that oddly glaring statistic, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S is doing pretty well for itself with its pre-set goal of 10 million sold handsets getting closer by the day. The latest news coming out of Samsung indicates that they already have 9.3 million users who are hooked to the Galaxy S and the 10 million landmark is not far away at all.

Many laughed at Samsung when they initially talked about selling 10 million of the Android-based handsets as their target when they launched it into the market. But 9.3 millions sold units later, that seems more of a reality than wishful thinking. With Galaxy S having been a huge hit in Samsung’s home market of Korea and with the company successfully selling over 2 million Galaxy S sets there, it now seems certain that they will beat the 10 million mark.

The Galaxy S came out on 5 different carriers in the US and sporting a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 5 megapixel camera and Android 2.1 inside, the Galaxy S is still waiting for its Android 2.2 update globally. So what next for Galaxy S?
