According to Yonhap News, only 10 days after hitting the market, Samsung has managed to sell over 200,000 Galaxy S phones in South Korea. AndroidandMe writes that "Samsung is on track to overtake the iPhone 3GS which has only sold 800,000 in South Korea in the past eight months."
Yonhap wrote that Samsung attributes the strong sales of the phone to the apps that come with it:
The Galaxy S smartphone is tailored to better cater to South Korean consumers, the company said, with pre-loaded applications from South Korean bookstores and portal Web sites.
Unwired View adds that to boost sales of their Galaxy S family, "Samsung’s betting not only on Asian and European markets, but also on North America, where different versions of the smartphone will be launched via major carriers like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Bell."
Phandroid thinks "Samsung’s looking to hit a stride in the smartphone market that they arguably haven’t enjoyed since the introduction of the Instinct."
AndroidandMe also writes that when "the Galaxy S hits store shelves at all four major carriers in the U.S. and the other 110 nations across the planet, the Galaxy S is surely destined to be the top selling Android handset of the year." Unwired View suggests that the Galaxy S might even "become Samsung’s most successful smartphone ever."
