Samsung: 1 Million Galaxy S Phones Sold Already

The Galaxy S line is currently available via T-Mobile and AT&T in the form of the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate and is expected to hit all major carriers by fall. However, Samsung yesterday revealed that it has sold an impressive number of units already. 

"Bringing Galaxy S devices to multiple carriers has given Samsung Mobile the opportunity to reach millions of consumers," said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Mobile.

"I am proud of the instant success of the Galaxy S line up and I am very pleased to announce that because of the support of our carrier partners and loyal customers, we have shipped one million Galaxy S devices in the U.S. market. Samsung Mobile looks forward to sharing additional Galaxy S milestones in the future."

It's nothing compared to Apple's 1.7 million iPhone 4s in the first weekend, but it's definitely impressive. Samsung's UK branch also made news when its PR team took to Twitter to dish out free Galaxy S phones to users tweeting about the iPhone 4's antenna issue.

Do you have a Galaxy S? Let us know what you think of it in the comments below!

    had my black berry bold stolen...replaced it with a HTC aria...loved android and a great phone for most users but my big thumbs were slaughtering the tiny touch screen and my urge for a better CPU had me trade it in on a captivate a few weeks later.

    The galaxy s an awsome phone. I highly encourage people to check it out. runs 3D games with ease and has some great emulators for older gaming systems if you have some old ROMs laying around. Android market has some great apps. Mostly importantly those of us with fat fingers can use the touch screen with ease.

    My only complaint is about its USB storage funcionality. Its a bit finkiy about which usb port you use on your PC and that you use the supplied usb mini wire and not a generic one or you'll never see windows recognize even though the phone does sp amd will at least charge. And backwards as it feels you have to manually mount the memory in the phone's OS when you plug it in to your PC. Serious samsung why brain fart those two issues and nail every thing else so elequintly?

    One thing did leave me scratching my head after playing with android and some of the apps/ features it has. Security issuses are huge in the mobile market in regards to credit/identity theft, files on both mobile phones and PC's are easily accesible with some simple apps and some bad intentions. That said its helped me to rethink my digital security measures. I can't wait for some tegra 2 devices to hit the market and stir up some healthy competiton.

    kudos to samsung on a phone well done. I give it a 9 out of 10.

  • The Galaxy S phone is a gamer's beast of a phone. Just installed Assassin's creed, Hawx and Nova from Gameloft games on it yesterday. Each game is fluid smooth, and as someone mentioned earlier you can play Emulators from Snes to Playstation (PCE16, Gensoid, SNesoid Psx4droid! )This phone does not disappoint, though you may want to carry a second battery if you play a lot games instead of working ! ^_^ / oh yea also fring works on edge or wifi with video conferencing (so far , must have a front facing camera model / Sprint epic / international Galaxy S unlocked) All I am waiting for now is X-plane for Android !!!

    Love mine. Waiting for the Froyo update, coming soon.

    Was going to get a HTC HD2, glad I didn't! Now my wife and I can both get droid apps (She has a Samsung Behold II). I already update the SD card to 16GB, and copied the movie the phone came with (on the SD card), Avatar, to it w/o issue.

    Looking for an app to watch TV on, so I don't miss my Broncos later in the month when I'm on vaction in Vegas (I'll be in the air during kickoff) ;P (ESPN Scoreboard might be enough.)

    Actually missed my first hone call, because I didn't know you had to swipe the answer call button, not push it. Texting is easy, even with my monster hands.

    Now they are coming out with one with a pull out keyboard? Aargh!

    I've had my captivate since it came out and have been very pleased. The build quality is excellent and I know this because I've already teared it down. The only gripe is the GPS bug and there's a fix coming out in Sep. Kudos to Samsung.
