It's no secret that Samsung's Galaxy S III has been a huge hit among Android fans. As a result, the company is already predicting impressive sales numbers. In July, Samsung expects sales of the latest Galaxy smartphone to surpass 10 million. Of course this is on a global scale, not just in the United States.

What's remarkable is that the Galaxy S III has the potential to hit the 10-million milestone within two months of its launch. Samsung began offering the Galaxy S III in Europe on May 29. The phone was released to U.S. carriers last week. Yesterday, Samsung began offering the phone in its home market. By the end of July, about 300 mobile carriers in 147 countries will offer the Galaxy S III.

Samsung executives have acknowledged it's hard to keep up with the demand for this smartphone, due in part to component shortages. Shin Jong-kyun, president of Samsung's mobile communications business, said the company expects to resolve the mobile component supply issues in the next week.

I really would like one of these phones... too bad it is pretty much sold out everywhere and I have been told that they have not even started shipping the Sprint version yet.

The only thing I really dislike about the phone is that their is no Micro SD slot on the thing so you are stuck with the built in memory. I am also not sure I am going to like the size of the phone (it might be too big).
