Samsung Galaxy S III tops 10 million units sold

Samsung expects 20 million by the fall

Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphone has sold more than 10 million units since its release. This according to a recent announcement by the electronics manufacturer, one that noted that the device reached the 10 million mark ahead of even Samsung's own estimates. The popularity of the device was apparent even before its launch, though some estimates have the S III selling significantly fewer units than Samsung claims.

The Galaxy S III has been available in Europe and Asia since May, when it debuted to strong demand in those markets. It is now available in more than 140 countries around the world, a fact that has solidified Samsung's standing as the world's top smartphone manufacturer.

In a recent earnings statement, Samsung indicated that it expects demand for the Galaxy S III to remain high, even as competitor smartphones enter the market. The company now expects to move 20 million units of the S III by the fall of this year, which is in keeping with previous estimates it released earlier this year. [via MobileBurn]

    Shipped or sold?

    They've lied about the difference before.

    Still: good on them. About time a real alternative showed up in relevant numbers.

    This commenting system just plain S-U-K-S!

    And yes, competition IS good and even thou I would never buy it, I think this year's iPhone will most likely make up for all the missed expectations of last year's model.

    I just enjoy seeing Apple and Samsung competing for the attention of the consumers without their lawyers intervening.
