Last week we learned that sales of the Samsung Galaxy S II topped 120,000 in the manufacturer’s native South Korea, but today we are learning that demand for the handset is global with the announcement of 3 million pre-orders for the device tallied by the end of April. When the S II was first revealed at Mobile World Congress, it left little doubt that the device would be a hit and response from around the world echoes the notion.
The Galaxy S will eventually reach 120 countries on 140 carriers, but we should note that the tremendous pre-order numbers don’t even account for the US where a rollout of the device is still unannounced. We’d like to see the pre-order numbers with North America factored in. They’d surely be astounding.
