Samsung to Hit 2 Million U.S. Galaxy S Milestone by End of Next Week
Samsung is poised to sell 2 million Galaxy S smartphone in the U.S. market alone by the end of next week. The phone was first demoed in the Spring at CTIA with a lot of fanfare surrounding the crisp and vibrant Super AMOLED display, which Samsung is claiming is superior to Apple’s higher pixel density Retina Display, along with the fast Hummingbird ARM-based chipset.
In the U.S., Samsung has managed to place its Galaxy S models, in different variants, across all four major national carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. The Captivate, Epic 4G, Vibrant, and Fascinate all have the basic Hummingbird processor and Super AMOLED display, but differ in other features that make them stand out. For instance, Sprint’s Epic 4G is a 3G/4G smartphone with front-facing camera, LED flash, and a sliding keyboard, things that the Vibrant and Captivate lack, but the latter two offer a slimmer design.
