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."

Your world must be an odd place, hating 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. That works better don't you think?

By the way you should brush up on your English comprehension skills, I specifically said that "for some people Android, or Windows 8 in all it's incarnations for that matter, may well be the best choice". I don't have any feelings, positive or negative towards Android customers. How could I? We are talking about tens of millions of people who I don't know. What they want to buy is up to them and their choices will probably work out just fine for them. You on the other hand seem very threatened by people who buy Apple kit and who like it. Why? What is about Apple that threatens you so much?

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.
