The Nexus S, EVO and various Droid branded Android phones get all the buzz. But, Samsung’s Galaxy S phones are racking up the sales figures. According to TheNextWeb, Samsung reported 10 million units sold in less than 7 months since the line was launched.
40% of those 10 million units were sold in the U.S. Both the global and U.S. sales numbers are extremely impressive for a product line that appears to have minimal advertisement from what I’ve seen (or not as the case may be).
The Galaxy S phone sales is an indication of how Android phones in particular and, perhaps, other smartphone platforms like HP’s webOS and Microsoft’s Windows Phone can build marketshare by edging out feature phones instead of other smartphones.
