Samsung Galaxy S III is the mobile device that is expected to be the most successful smartphone yet. Samsung broke the waters with the Galaxy S, and ever since their flagship devices have been on a rise. Samsung Galaxy S II made more sales with most recent announcements pegging the total sales of the Galaxy S II plus Galaxy Note at 50 million by end of Q1. This contributed heavily in the ousting of Apple as the smartphone sales global leader. Samsung Galaxy S III reportedly had over 9 million preorders from Mobile carriers globally. Locally Safaricom also wanted in on the pre-orders but systems had not yet been set up before the stock was already available in the shelves. Currently Galaxy S III is selling at Kshs 60,000 ($720) and as I hear they are flying off shelves. I already know upto 5 close friends who have got it and are speaking so nicely about the 2012 Samsung flagship device.
Samsung expects it to sell 10 million by July, meaning this will as expected be the fastest selling of any Samsung device. Samsung also intends to open up availability of Galaxy S III to over 147 countries by July. The device was made available in the US market on the 21st of July, a very key market that will spurn the shoot in sales over the remaining days of June. It’s already selling on T-Mobile and select retail stores while it will be available on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless U.S. Cellular in the next few weeks. The LTE version of the Galaxy S III was announced today to be available in Samsung’s home market, Korea.
