The Samsung Galaxy S II has sold more than one million units in total, the company announced today. This is not the first time that the company has been able to reach that mile stone but it definitely is the most memorable. As the company said today in their press release, the Galaxy S II has been “ selling like hot cakes” and may be their most profitable and popular device of all time.
For instance, the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S was a device that reached more than 1 million sales as well, but took up to forty days longer to do so. The Samsung Galaxy S II has been selling at a pace the company has not seen before and may never see again. In all, they average selling one Samsung Galaxy S II every three seconds.
The device was first released on April 29th and has continued to sell at a break neck speed since that time. Along with their announcement they have also released a series of videos and photos holding the 1,000,000 sign commemorating the number. They have been able to put together a good campaign to draw attention to how quickly they have been able to sell the device so quickly.
The device also received to notch reviews from various sources when it was first released, so it is no surprise that it has become so popular in such a short amount of time. It is clear that Samsung has taken the quality of their unlocked Samsung cell phones very seriously as of late and their sales have really begun to reflect that fact. They may never sell a device as well or as quickly as they have their Samsung Galaxy S II, so this has been a reason to celebrate for the popular company.
