Samsung Ships 10 Million Galaxy S Smartphones

Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphone has shipped some 10 million

units since its June 2010 release date, according to the company. That meets

Samsung’s sales target for the device, which faces stiff competition not only

from the Apple iPhone but other Android offerings.

“Based on their brand power and their relationship with

telecommunication companies, their numbers should be increasing steadily,”

Young Park, an analyst at Woori Investment & Securities Co., told

Bloomberg Jan. 3.

Samsung’s mobile-device strategy has been a particularly

aggressive one. In addition to the Samsung Galaxy S, which the company

introduced on multiple carriers, the company is also pushing into the tablet PC

arena with its 7-inch Galaxy Tab tablet. Reports also hint it will unveil the

Galaxy Player, a touch-screen multimedia device in the mode of the iPod Touch,

during this week’s CES (Consumer Electronics

Show) in Las Vegas.

The Galaxy Tab managed to sell more than 1 million units

worldwide within two months of its first release. Combined with robust sales

for the Galaxy S, that suggests Samsung has something of a lead among the

various manufacturers trying to establish an Android-based device franchise.
