Samsung's Galaxy S III continues to be a big seller
Apple may be basking in glory of the
, but Samsung has a heavyweight champion of its own in the smartphone sector. Samsung this weekend announced that it has shipped 30 million of its latest flagship smartphone: the
Galaxy S III
The Galaxy S III has only been on the market since May, so that makes the feat even more astounding. Incredibly, the Galaxy S III's sales performance vastly outpaces that of its predecessor -- it took Samsung 14 months to cross the 30 million unit sales threshold with the Galaxy S II.
The Galaxy S III played a big roll in
Samsung's blockbuster Q3 earnings report
. The South Korean company saw $7.4 billion in profit (up 90 percent from the same period a year ago), which was mostly buoyed by 56.3 million smartphones shipped during the quarter.
Samsung has also struck a cord with audiences with its
humorous television commercials
that poke fun at rabid Apple fans that wait in long lines to purchase the latest iDevice.

" I do hope motorola puts out some killer new phones in the next few years."
That is what they are saying. The Google input wont see any devices until late 2013. The current crop of Razr's etc are all Motorola designed from prior to Google. Cant wait either.
