Samsung score a victory over Apple

Samsung has had a pretty rough couple of week following its loss to Apple in a California district court. Samsung was found guilty of infringing on various Apple design patents and was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages. To add insult to injury, Apple is looking to add the flagship Galaxy S III to the banned list in the U.S.
Even with all of that bad news swirling around Samsung, the South Korean company can at least take solace in the fact that its Galaxy S III has knocked the Apple iPhone 4S off its perch as the best-selling smartphone in America.

"We believe this is the first month since the iPhone 4S launched in October 2011 that it was not the top-selling smartphone in the U.S. market," said Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley.
However, Samsung's victory over Apple may be short-lived. Apple has officially confirmed a September 12 press event to announce the next generation iPhone. Sales will likely start towards the end of September.

Good point Jason. My family has a Galaxy S II, Conquer 4G and a Transform Ultra. All Samsung phones, and the SII was just recently purchased, but none are the SIII.

It's hard to even consider an SIII over the SII because I think the older Galaxy looks better, feels better, and has a better (albeit lower-resolution) non-Pentile screen.

It's funny to think of all the Samsung products I own, but none are an SIII, nor are their plans to get an SIII. I'm sure MANY people are in the same boat, which makes this sales achievement even more amazing.

Should have gone with a Galaxy Nexus... nice phone. Has pretty much all the specs of a galaxy 3 - with a better textured and looking back cover.

I like it over the GS3. Its hardware is slightly older.
