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!
