Galaxy S2 Shows No Signs of Quitting: 20 Million Sold and Counting

That is the mind-boggling number of Samsung Galaxy S2 devices that have been sold in the past 10 months – and, mind you, the Galaxy S2 has only been available in the U.S. for about 4 of those months. 10% of all South Koreans own one.

Samsung's flagship device is still selling VERY well, helped along by discounts with various wireless carriers (you can currently snag one from Verizon for just $50 on contract).

Galaxy S2 smartphones will likely sell well for a long time, just as we've seen with the Galaxy S. The phone hit the 3 million mark in 55 days, the 5 million mark in July and 10 million mark in September, 5 months after the launch.
