The Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant was a phone that was touted by many as the next potential competitor for the iPhone. Although many doubted that the phone would reach the level that it has, the 9.3 million mark that was announced today places the phone among some very elite competition.
The company first announced in October that they had sold more than 7 million units of the phone across the globe. They also predicted that the fun would sell more than 10 million by the new year, which seems to be a mark that they are going to miss, but needless to say, the numbers that they have reached are still very impressive.
The Galaxy S is by far the most successful phone that Samsung has placed on the market. The fact that they are going to fall below their original projections shows that perhaps the sales of slowed, but the overall number is high enough to earn the applause of anyone who follows the mobile industry.
The phone is the most popular Android device in the world, making it the only real legitimate iPhone competitor. Although the iPhone 4 unlocked has sold substantially more, the Galaxy S is Android’s shining star, rising above the expectations and showing that Samsung can create a phone that can compete with the best on the market.
This is also a victory for Google, who has been investing heavily in Samsung devices in recent years. Their decision to go with the Galaxy S paid off in the long run, and the phone has grown to be the most impressive of the Android offerings. When it was originally released, many complained that it looked too much like an iPhone, but those complaints have dissipated as the usability of the phone has won users over.
