Samsung Celebrates 10 Million Galaxy S II Sales in Five Months

Samsung announced yesterday that the company has now sold more than 10 million units of their Galaxy S II lineup.  Spread across the globe through multiple carriers and partners, the Galaxy S II has doubled from five million in just eight weeks.  The best part about this figure is that the United States has yet to factor into the results.  Toss in the new Epic 4G Touch and the AT&T and T-Mobile versions and we can easily see that needle moving further, quickly.  Congratulations to Samsung for the success and here’s to hoping for plenty more in the way of press releases!
