Samsung fans have a great reason to rejoice. The company has just announced that the Samsung Galaxy S line up has shipped one million devices in the US market. And this is big news because it is being sold by just two carriers as of now!
Moreover, the Galaxy S models: Captivate on AT&T and Vibrant on T-Mobile are only selling since the middle of July. So, these impressive numbers have been notched up in just under a month and a half!
With GPS issues on Samsung galaxy, it is interesting to see what has spurred the rise of the Galaxy S mobiles. Surely Android will see this as another major victory, but the OS is often only as good as the phone and you must commend the features of the mobiles too. It seems that the much vaunted super AMOLED display and 1GHz Hummingbird processors have worked their magic!
And given the fact that two more models of the Galaxy S line- the Epic 4G and the Fascinate will soon be available on Sprint and Verizon, Samsung can expect much bigger and better landmarks in the near future. US Cellular and Cellular South will also start selling these phones later this year.
With several carriers and a diversified range the Galaxy S range could easily take on Motorola and HTC devices on their home turf- high end Android devices. After all, these two companies have so far kept Samsung away from the party quite effectively. But the question is: for how much longer will they be able to resist the Samsung onslaught?
There may be one more reason behind the astounding success of the Samsung Galaxy S range. Many of those who have been trying in vain to get their hands on the Motorola Droid X or the HTC Droid Incredible, may just have flipped and gone for the Samsung Galaxy S instead. But supply problems are the companies’ own failings and this should not reduce the praise that Samsung deserves for making the Galaxy line a success.
Moreover, the Samsung phones have hit this sales figure despite having a GPS glitch, which was due to firmware error and faulty GPS circuitry. And despite the promised firmware update yet to arrive, these phones have been flying off the racks with incredible speed. This perhaps also goes on to show that Samsung phones have created a greater trust among consumers than before.
And when the Samsung Galaxy S phones are soon to be updated with latest Android OS and that should make them even more coveted!
