Samsung Galaxy S hits 10m milestone
Dubai, January 12, 2011
Samsung Electronics Co, a leading mobile phone provider, today announced it had sold 10 million of its Android-powered Galaxy S Smartphones.
The milestone was reached less than seven months after the device was launched, in June 2010.
JK Shin, president and head of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics, said “The Galaxy S is the result of our 22-year heritage in the mobile industry. It is the realisation of our concept of ‘the Smart Life’ - we wanted to makes users’ lives more convenient, more exciting, and more integrated. Today’s milestone shows that we have succeeded: 10 million Galaxy S users around the world are living the Smart Life.”
“The Galaxy S has set a new standard in Smarphones and outperformed even our expectations. We are proud of this achievement; to consistently sell over 1.4 million devices per month clearly demonstrates the consumer demand for relevant, empowering mobile experiences. We will continue to meet this demand, delivering leading innovation and building smartphones that will maximize user experiences.”
Introduced by JK Shin at CTIA Las Vegas in March 2010, the Android-powered Galaxy S incorporates a 4-inch Super Amoled screen and a 1 GHz application processor that enables vibrant HD videos, rich augmented reality content through Layar Reality Browser, and advanced LBS (Location Based Services). –TradeArabia News Service
