Samsung S3 is a major success

When it comes to the most popular Android smartphones on the market, Samsung traditionally has held that honor. Samsung has announced that it has sold more than 20 million Galaxy S III smartphones in the device's first 100 days of availability. 
The S3 launched at the end of May and according to Samsung the device has sold at rate of about 200,000 units per day. The S3 reached the 20 million sold mark about three times faster than its predecessor the S2, and about six times faster than the original Galaxy S. Samsung offered details breaking down the 20 million number by country.
According to the manufacturer 6 million of the sales came in Europe, 4.5 million units were sold in Asia, 4 million units were sold in North America, and 2.5 million were sold in Korea. While sales of the S3 reached the 20 million mark quicker than the two previous S devices, the S3 still has a way to go to match raw sales numbers for its predecessors.
So far, the S2 has sold 28 million units, and the original S has sold 24 million units as of this June.
A Samsung spokesperson said, "Galaxy S III is for non-technical people to evolve and in smart phones the global smartphone market. [Samsung] is making a few changes to the [smartphone] and will try our best to provide a special experience for consumers to differentiate continuous innovation through the creation of products in the future."

Not just the product, but the entire company. And what makes it even more crazy, is the fact that the company doesn't give 2 shits about the rabid, drooling tool that defends them tooth and nail.

I expect you to post more uneducated Apple biased drivel like above.

You do have a very interesting view of things. Your world must be an odd place, worshiping one company like that and letting it cloud your objectivity and view of other tech companies, the products they make, and the people that buy them.

I have no feeling on the matter, but I had to come in on an article about how may Androids are selling and post my diatribe on how Apple is better.

I dont hate Apple. It may seem that way to you because you love them do much and I prefer Android, but that preference is based on current products and specs and the benefots of the OS itself over IOS... I do hate the 2 faced lawsuits, but not them or their products. I just post counter to you because you are way too overbearingly Apple biased.

Your "hard on" for Apple makes you great comic relief though... I'll give you that. It's like watchign a clown perform.

Find a hobby or get a dog. At least a dog can love you back. Apple is a company that makes products, and your fetishism and projection towards these products is incredibly unhealthy and obsessive. If you talked to a therapist you can get yourself an official diagnosis. Everyone is telling you the same thing, guess why?

Crazy old man.

I believe Google's purchase of Motorola Mobility was not simply for their patents but to reassert control over Android. When Google released the Nexus 7 it was the first device with Android JB. I bought one not just for the price but for JB and the promise of future Android improvements via updates.

I can't say which way Samsung will go with their OS but I don't expect them to separate from the Android trunk. To differentiate too much means taking additional programming burden on themselves. Additionally, their unequivocal rejection of webOS shows they don't want their own OS.

Rather, I see Samsung offering more phones with Windows 8. Unlike you I see MS gradually carving a stronger presence in the mobility market. MS may have started late but they have the resources to correct their stumbling. I expect Samsung to use MS as a protective patent shield for this line of their products.

If Apple becomes any more successful and grows any larger, there will just be less competition for them to copy from. Eventually they'll hit a glass-ceiling and.

Android has failed in tablets and I don't expect much from Windows 8 in tablets (except possibly in the enterprise market), so I expect Apple to dominate the tablet market and for the tablet market to eclipse the desktop market.

If by failed, you mean regarding market that note, apple has failed in the pc market for the past 20 years.

The only fools are those that like to butt into articles that have nothing to do with their love interest in mind. Now where in the article did it say anything about Apple? It was Apple free but yet, a fool has to interject about Apple. I wouldn't be surprised that you're interjecting your love for Apple in the Nokia/MS articles, but I don't read about those because I have no interest in those products.

If your love interest is with Apple please stay with Apple related articles, and stop posting your sonnets for Apple and stay away from non-Apple articles.
