We all knew that the Samsung Galaxy S II was going to be a success when it was unveiled to the world. The fact that it is super thin, has a 1.2GHz dual core processor, and that oh so pretty Super AMOLED Plus screen makes it a sure winner. What we could not have expected was how quickly it would reach some very stagering sales numbers. According to Samsung the Galaxy S II has now seen 3 million sales (pre-orders) worldwide, which means that your carrier is buying this one up as fast as they can. Samsung has also stated that they intend to sell 10 million units worldwide, which should be no problem and may happen faster than even Samsung predicts. The Galaxy S II has received praise from numerous tech blogs, some even saying that it is by far the best Android phone on the market by far, which will of course aid in the sales as consumes read these reviews. The device is also one of the few new phones that actually comes loaded with Android 2.3, something that all manufacturers should be loading new devices with but for some reason it is not happening.
With Google IO starting tomorrow there are some people that think the sales of the Galaxy S II may slow a little if Google announces the new “I” version of the Android OS, which may cause consumers to hold off another month or two to see what else is coming out. However no matter which way you look at it, the Samsung Galaxy S II has made a big splash and I believe that it will continue to sell well until another manufacturer, or even Samsung, cook up something that can blow it out of the water. Would a new Android version keep you from buying the Galaxy S II? Or is it more likely to come down to price on this one?
