Queste cifre non sembrano nemmeno lontanamente avvicinarsi alle vendite registrate da Apple grazie all’iPhone, quasi 20 milioni nel solo Q2. Però questo numero per il colosso sud-coreano potrebbe aumentare drasticamente tenendo conto che il Galaxy S II è da recentemente approdato negli Stati Uniti.
Di seguito potrete leggere il felice comunicato stampa ufficiale di Samsung:
