Samsung Galaxy S III passes 30,000,000 sales mark


Earlier this year Samsung [2] announced their mega-hit Galaxy S III was sold 10,000,000 times [3] in less than two months, then back in September we learned the device was bought by 20,000,000 people [4] in less than 100 days after debut. Now the impressive device has hit another landmark – 30,000,000.

Samsung Poland, the Polish subsidiary of Samsung, announced on its Facebook page that the Galaxy S III [5] has been sold to over 30,000,000 people, roughly five months since it was first released at the end of May. This count, unlike the previous 20,000,000 count, includes Galaxy S III sales in the United States, plus Korea and Japan, and obviously sales of the unlocked international version.

Does 30 million make Galaxy S III the most popular device, ever? No. The iPhone [6] holds that title (by a long shot), with the iPhone 5 expected to be the most popular of the lot. Still, however, 30 million is nothing to laugh at. In fact, I’m sure Apple [7] isn’t laughing.
