It only makes sense that Samsung’s doing well in their country of origin where they’ve pushed the Samsung Galaxy S more than anywhere else (beside the US, at least, with the four major carriers here making a pretty big deal out of it). SK Telecom – the exclusive carrier for the device – announced that they sold 100,000 units in the six days since it’s been launched (June 24th up until now).


There’s no way to put this into perspective considering how different the market is in Korea compared to other regions (I don’t think anyone’s touching the iPhone’s sales records any time soon), but Samsung Hub tells us that a device that hits 200,000 units is considered a huge success over there. The fact that Samsung hit half that number in under a week spells great fortune for them and SK Telecom if trends continue to sway in that direction.
