Samsung On Track to Sell One Million Handsets a Day
Samsung is on track to exceed its own goal of selling (not shipping, mind you) one million phones per day. J.K. Shin, Samsung's president of mobile communications, has confirmed that the company is currently selling around 820,000 devices per day and that number is likely to increase when the Galaxy S2 goes on sale in the U.S. sometime next month.
Business has been good for Samsung over the past two years. Last year, the company sold nearly 280 million smartphones and this year it is on target to exceed 300 million units sold. Who knows, maybe the company will even beat Apple. Last quarter, Samsung sold 19.4 million smartphones, approaching the nearly 20.34 million units sold by Apple.
Those numbers are pretty astounding, huh?
