Se solamente nel mese di Luglio Samsung comunicò di aver raggiunto quota 10 milioni di Galaxy S III venduti vuol dire che in poco più di un mese la cifra è stata raddoppiata.
Anche il predecessore Galaxy S II è riuscito a raggiungere la soglia dei 20 milioni d’unità vendute ma il tempo impiegato è triplicato, circa 9 mesi.
Ecco la consueta immagine che mostra felicemente il traguardo raggiunto:
Le vendite suddivise per area sono le seguenti:
Europa – 6 milioni
Asia – 4.5 milioni
North America – 4 milioni
South Korea – 2.5 milioni
Adesso toccherà a Samsung ed al suo Galaxy S III riuscire a mantenere quest’andamento di crescita anche se la concorrenza sarà spietata con nuovi smartphone HTC, Motorola, LG, Nokia ed Apple.
