Samsung’s flagship Galaxy SII has already picked up plenty of plaudits and had many reviewers lauding it as the best smartphone available on the planet, and now it’s turned into the company’s fastest selling handset ever.
Samsung had already scored a big hit with the original Galaxy S phone – that one managed to hit the three million sales landmark in 85 days – but its successor has made mincemeat of that record, notching up 3 million sales in just 55 days – that’s one phone every 1.5 seconds!
Incredibly, the handset hasn’t even reached the US market yet, so it looks like Samsung’s sales figures are going to keep on climbing (unless, of course, Apple’s fairly despicable attempt to block it from the American market succeeds).
Back in Chez Wirefresh, we’ve been using the Galaxy SII as our primary phone for the past month and as far as we’re concerned, it’s the best mobile out there right now, bar none. It’s a fabulous phone.
