200,000 Galaxy S Handset Sold in Korea After Only 10 Days

While everyone in the US is waiting for the carriers to drop their versions of the Samsung Galaxy, the international version is seeing good sales numbers in South Korea.  Launched on June 24th in South Korea, Samsung has already sold 200,000 units after only being on the market for 10 days.  Considering that Apple’s iPhone 3GS sold a little over 800,000 units in roughly 8 months, this is big news for Samsung.  The company attributes the handset’s success to how it better suits the needs of Korean users, however they only cite the preloaded apps as the reason for this.  Granted this is only one country, but perhaps the Samsung Galaxy will increase their market share as they hoped.

What do you think the sales figures will look like in the US?  Which will be the most popular:  T-Mobile’s Vibrant, AT&T’s Captivate, Sprint’s Epic 4G or Verizon’s Fascinate?
