Samsung Galaxy S sales top 9.3 million

Samsung Galaxy S sales top 9.3 million

In a statement earlier this week, Samsung announced that global sales of its popular Galaxy S line of Android phones have reached 9.3 million units. Samsung also stated that sales in its home country of South Korea have topped the 2 million mark, making the Galaxy S more popular than Apple’s iPhone, which has sold roughly 1.8 million units to date. Samsung announced in October that Galaxy S sales had surpassed 7 million units worldwide, and it said sales would reach 10 million units before the year was out. Samsung may end up falling just short of its projections, but the Galaxy S is still wildly successful — in fact, it’s the most popular Android line in the world right now. Samsung stated earlier this month that it had sold over 1 million Galaxy Tab units as of the end of November, making its first Android tablet a success as well. More →

Best Buy Mobile reveals new Free Phone Friday special for October 22

This week’s specials are in, and the folks over at your local Best Buy Mobile location have a few solid treats in store. Free Phone Friday, for those who failed Obvious 101, is a promotion that gives customers a new selection of free phones each week in October… on Friday. Here is this week’s lot:

  • Samsung Fascinate (Verizon Wireless)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (AT&T)
  • Sanyo Zio (Sprint)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (T-Mobile)

As you might imagine, each phone requires a new 2-year contract to be had for the low, low price of nada. As you also might imagine, this offer is only good for one day — Friday, October 22 — so get ready to head out bright and early Friday morning if you’d like to partake. Or, of course, you can just order these puppies up from the Best Buy Mobile website. More →
