Number Of Samsung Galaxy S Phones Sold Cross 5 Million

The Samsung Galaxy S Android smartphone is getting ready to be launched in Japan. With Nielsen’s recent study pointing out to the growing popularity of the Android platform over the iOS platform, we are no doubt curious to hear about the proliferation of the Samsung Galaxy S phones.

These phones have had a very successful launch having been available on four different carriers in the US besides being available on a number of carriers across the world. According to a recent press release, the strategy appears to have worked as Samsung has announced the sale of 5 million Galaxy S handsets worldwide. This includes the more than 2 million handsets that were sold in USA alone and another 1 million that was sold in South Korea.

With new launches planned, it just makes us wonder if rumors of Samsung having stalled the production of Galaxy S due to a shortage of Super AMOLED displays were false. Hopefully.
