Based on numbers coming from Korean website Hankooki.com, it would appear as if Samsung has sold more than 100,000 of the Android-based Galaxy smartphones in Europe during its first month of availability.
Granted, 100,000 certainly does not compare to some of the other smartphones currently on the market, however these are the numbers for just one Android phone, which could lead one to believe that Android is not only growing in popularity but that it also has a nice future ahead.
I do think that it is important to point out that the hankooki website seems legitimate, but I have not seen any reports coming from them in the past — in other words I cannot speculate how accurate their reporting is.
Additionally, one other item that should be noted (again this is based on the Hankooki article) is that the Dream, Magic and Hero (all from HTC) have only sold a combined total of 80,000 units during that same time period. Personally that number sounds a little low.
