1 Million Samsung Galaxy S Devices Shipped In U.S.

Samsung's success with the Galaxy S family of phones in Korea has been well publicized, but we hadn't heard much about the success in the U.S. until yesterday. According to a press release by Samsung Mobile, one million Galaxy S devices have been shipped in the U.S. AndroidGuys comments that Samsung's "print, online, and television ad campaign is paying off!"

Considering that T-Mobile and AT&T already have Galaxy S variants, and the imminent launch of the Sprint Epic 4G, and Verizon's Fascinate, it shouldn't come as a surprise to many that Samsung would see success with their Galaxy S line of handsets. In the next month, I wouldn't be surprised to see that number reach 2 million, once each of the four carriers has a variant available.

Phandroid points out that the current shipment numbers "should only account for the Captivate and Vibrant for AT&T and T-Mobile." However, if Samsung is already counting the shipments of Epic 4G and Fascinate handsets which have yet to be released, then this number is some-what less impressive.

Android Central also correctly points out that the 1 million number "sounds like that's devices shipped, and not necessarily devices sold to consumers."

Phandroid notes that Samsung Galaxy Tab may likely receive a similar reception:

Also launching in the coming months will be the Samsung Galaxy Tab, a 7-inch slate with the same core features as the S. If that device can take on as large a hold as the flagship handset, I’d say the iPad may have its first true competitor on hand.

TalkAndroid observes that thanks to the Galaxy S family's "1GHz Hummingbird CPU and its gorgeous 4in Super-AMOLED screen, it’s no wonder that these phones are selling like hotcakes." I'd have to agree, as the time I've had with the phone was very enjoyable, and I would have little problem recommending the phone to others.
