Samsung has seen impressively strong sales of its latest Galaxy S smartphone offering since its launch in late May and Android smartphones in general are continuing to sell extremely well worldwide.
The Windows 7.5 version of Samsung’s Omnia M mobile phone has officially been made available to consumers around the UK. Phones4U is to be the sole retailer offering the devices for the first few months after its introduction on August 1st.
Samsung has seen sales of its Galaxy S3 smartphone devices pass the 10 million mark on a global basis within just a few months of its release. The achievement matched the expectations that the Korean company had for its enormously popular device prior to its introduction.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone has been withdrawn from sale in the US following developments in a court case relating to alleged patent infringements brought by the consumer technology giant Apple.
Apple saw its share of the US smartphone market increase during the three
months to the end of May in terms of platform prevalence but it still trails
Android in that context by some considerable distance. According to figures
compiled by the research firm ComScore, Apple’s operating systems covered
31.9 percent of the US market in May, an increase of around 1.7 percent.
Android’s share of the market however was put at around 50.9 percent in total
for the period.
Samsung has said it expects to see its latest Galaxy smartphone sell more quickly on a worldwide basis than any of its previous mobile handsets, including the hugely popular Galaxy S2. The head of the company’s mobile division spoke recently about the prospects for its smartphone operation this year and said he expects to see as many as ten million Galaxy S3s sold globally in July 2012 alone.
