Galaxy S III sales projected at 10M by July

  • So how successful has Samsung's newest Android phone been?

    Well, just take a look at the numbers. According to Samsung itself, the number of units of the Galaxy S III that have shipped should eclipse 10 million by next month.

    More than 9 million customers devices were set aside for pre-orders around the world.

    At full capacity, Samsung's manufacturing process can reportedly produce 5 million units of the phone per month.

    Samsung has been very specific that it does not see other Android phones as its competitor - it looks directly at the iPhone. It believes the Galaxy S line can be the definitive Android brand.

    And that isn't just blind arrogance. Samsung owns an astounding 30.6% of the mobile phone market. It toppled Nokia as the leader in the industry for the first time in 15 years.

    And with more than 50% of American consumers now owning smartphones, and with Android as the most popular smartphone platform by far, owning that industry is a huge deal.

    The Galaxy S III saw an almost unprecedented global launch last month, and has solidified partner deals with 100 carriers across the globe.
