It's been a busy couple of months for Samsung! After doing the unthinkable by launching it's Galaxy S high-end Android powered smartphone on all four major US carriers, Samsung did it one more time with the Galaxy Tab Android powered tablet. What does this mean? Let's just say that when you convince giants like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile to all push your products to their customers, the sales just come pouring.
Today, nearly three months after announcing that it has sold 1 million Galaxy S smartphones, Samsung announce that it has hit the 3 million units shipped mark. This puts Samsung at the number one position in Android market share, according to Gartner. It also puts a shadow over the old market leader HTC who has been somewhat quiet since it launched the HTC Evo 4G on Sprint in the end of spring.
The news didn't come alone; the company also announced that it has sold over a million Galaxy Tab units which comes as a bit of a shocker, considering it had only hit the 600,000 mark at the end of november. Analysts speculate the jump is at least partially due to the very successful Black Friday and Cyber Monday that just passed. What ever the case may be, go Samsung!
