Samsung Pre-Sells 9-Million Galaxy S III's
Wow! Impressive, impressive indeed.
The Galaxy S will first go on sale this May 29 in good, old Germany before it rolls out in other countries, but if pre-sales figures are true, well this has to be something that is going to catch the eyes of the folks in Cupertino, and I mean big time. According to the late and great Steve Jobs, Android phones, such as the Galaxy S, are nothing but "stolen product" and this, I presume, isn't going to make the legal scrabbles between Apple and Samsung any less palatable.
Of course, the 9 million pre-sold Galaxy S's is a figure that was reported to be from a unidentified Samsung official, but no actual confirmation of the claim has been verified that I know of. and according to this Reuters report, Samsung declined to comment. The Reuters report also stated that the "the new Galaxy S smartphone would "substantially contribute" to its second-quarter earnings", which would be an understatement if this report turns out to be true.
In conclusion, Samsung has done extremely well copying Apple, but Apple thus far has only made a dent in legally stopping Samsung and Android's blatant ripping off of Apple's patents and IP. For Apple's sake, lets hope justice prevails and soon.
And that's my 2 cents on this glorious sunny Friday, May 18, 2012
