Samsung’s Galaxy S line surpasses 100 million devices sold


As Samsung’s total number of Galaxy S3 handsets sold passes the 40 million mark, another milestone has been reached. Since the introduction of the original Galaxy S back in spring of 2010, a total of 100 million devices falling under the brand have been sold.

Each iteration of the Galaxy S has been hotter than the last. The Galaxy S3 currently sells at the rate of 190,000 units per day. It took seven months to reach the 40 million mark. By comparison, it took the Galaxy S2 20 months to achieve the same figure. As a less favorable comparison, Apple sells about the same number of iPhones every three months.

    1. I still have my SGS1 Cappy (used as a wifi-only kid device now), and except for crappy GPS, it wasn’t bad at all. Granted, it was a little slow on Eclair, Froyo, and Gingerbread, but ever since ICS & Jellybean ROMs showed up, the difference is night & day. I would have very little trouble falling back to my Cappy for a couple months should my SGS3 die.
