Samsung Breaks Another Galaxy SII Record And It’s Still Not In US

Posted on Jul 3 2011 - 9:40pm by Kyle

Samsung Mobile has set another record with the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone before it’s even hit US shores.  Samsung has reportedly sold 3 million Samsung Galaxy S II’s in 55 days.

The Samsung Galaxy S II has been released in Europe and Asia. It’s also been announced for a July 14th release in Canada however mums the word when it comes to a US release.  It’s been rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S II will hit AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. There has been rumored debate on whether or not it’s coming to T-Mobile.

The Samsung Galaxy S was announced for all four US carriers last year around this time at a media event featuring recording artist B.O.B.   Once the carrier names were in place AT&T was supposed to lead the way with the Samsung Captivate however T-Mobile beat them to the bunch by a couple of days, releasing the Samsung Vibrant with just signage printed on a computer at retail stores.

The Samsung Epic 4G and Samsung Fascinate were launched on Sprint and Verizon respectively, later last summer.

Samsung is hoping to sell 10 million Samsung Galaxy S II smartphones, which may be why they are delaying the US release, to sweep up in the US. The other scenario is that they are having a hard time putting the carrier deals in place.  Unlike last year where each carrier had their own branded Galaxy S device, the rumor is that the same device will go to all three carriers.

Although no numbers have been reported, it seems that Samsung is having a good bit of success with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.  So far the only carrier officially reporting a version of the tablet with cellular access has been Verizon.  Verizon began pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G last week with an expected release date 4-5 weeks away.

    So Verizon sprint and t-mobile are building HSPA networks with the 850mhz band just for this device? That’s very impressive.
