10 million Samsung Galaxy S handsets sold

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced their flagship Android Galaxy S mobile phone has retailed over 10 million units, globally.

The handset that's recently been upgraded to Android ‘Froyo' 2.2, with plans for Android ‘Gingerbread' 2.3 sold that vast amount in the seven months since first launched - which sets a record for the company.

These figures relate to the sales everywhere in the world, where the amount equates to 40,000 Samsung Galaxy S mobile phones being sold every day with a handset selling every 2 seconds.

Samsung's Android handset actually shifted five million devices in the four months until October last year, where the sale's curve dramatically increased for the last three months of the 2010 and another five million Galaxy S phones were sold.

Two million handsets were flogged in North America when the phone launched, whilst Samsung had a better sales record in Europe with four million Galaxy S phones being sold - where the rest of the world balances up the remaining numbers.

The Samsung Galaxy S arrived running Android 'Eclair' 2.1, with a 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen display, a 1Ghz processor, a 5 megapixel camera with 8 or 16GB of storage.
