Samsung's Galaxy S III continues to be a big seller

Apple may be basking in glory of the iPhone 5, 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.

Also, the latest sales #'s for Q3 2012 were just announced Friday. Android is now outselling iPhone 5 to 1.

in 2011 it was 2.5 to 1 and in Q2 2012 it was 4 to 1. I expected 2012 to be 5 to 1, but not this fast. Now its looking like 2013 will be 6 to 1 in the first half and even more by the end. Dang!

Its possible WP8 will take a chunk though.
