Samsung Sells 3 Million Galaxy S II Smartphones Worldwide (In Just 55 Days)

There's reason for Samsung to celebrate the 4th of July. The company just recently crossed the three million mark for units sold on their Galaxy S II smartphone. That happened in just 55 days, compared to the 85 days it took the original Galaxy S to sell that many units. It's a wild milestone. It means that a Galaxy S II device was sold every 1.5 seconds since launch around the world, and here's the really crazy part: it's not even available in the U.S. yet, among other places. Those in the U.S. have had to import them, and while it's highly likely that it will ship to AT&T at some point, it hasn't yet -- just think what those sales figures could be once it hits even more nations.


Congrats to Samsung for producing a killer phone that people are obviously crazy about -- it's good to have the competition!

Huge fan of samsung products. Almost always satisfied when i purchase something from them. Bought a refurbished samsung galaxy captivate last year and it is still working perfectly. Have about 2 samsung tvs and 2 monitors from samsung that have also have been working perfectly for years.

only problem i know with them is that my dad had purchased a refrigerator from them and it failed in about 6 months.

I am wondering if it will make it to the US market at all as the Galaxy SII was blocked by the courts from what I heard as well as about 3 other Samsung smart phones in the Apple trial. The only model of the Galaxy SII that would not be included in this from what I am understanding is the Sprint Epic 2, Being that I have seen nothing about that model clearing the FTC or any other division, and have actually seen no physical pictures of it either I have no clue when or if that will become a reality, although if it is I imagine it would be a good seller as the only available version available in the US of the Galaxy SII period probably at least before the quad cores etc start coming in the US.

Let's see it come to the US and big red!!!!! I've been waiting for this since it was announced!

@rapid1 you make a really good point about the courts blocking this phone, hopefully they let it in the us market. If they don't I will not be a happy camper.
