In 15 months the Galaxy S has tallied up 20 million in sales. The Galaxy S II on the other hand is growing quite a bit quicker. The US just received their variants of the Galaxy S II on Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T. The T-Mobile version of Samsung’s follow up device was actually the last one to release this time around. Verizon held out on the Samsung Galaxy S II presumably to launch the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus or perhaps because they are going to receive the Samsung Galaxy S II HD.
Samsung Telecommunications (Mobile) President, JK Shin had this to say: “Since its launch only five months ago, GALAXY SII has seen tremendous sales success and garnered enthusiastic reviews from consumers and mobile industry watchers across the globe. This is in addition to the continued sales momentum behind GALAXY S, which we launched at CTIA 2010 as continues to be a run-away success with consumers,” and added, “The phenomenal success of these smartphones once again demonstrates how the GALAXY S smartphones is setting the standard for smart mobile technology around the world.”
