We have some very impressive news coming out of Samsung camp earlier today, as the Korean company announced that it is sold over 100 million Galaxy S smartphones.  While we tend to assume the Galaxy S III as the main Galaxy S device, it is important to remember that a considerable portion of smartphone users are still holding onto the Galaxy S and the Galaxy S II.

In any event, it is a tremendous accomplishment for Samsung to sell 100 million devices of a single brand.  In terms of a time frame, the Galaxy S launched 2 years and 7 months ago in May 2010.  It is a feat that I’m not sure if Motorola will come close to with the DROID brand or HTC with its One brand.  On a related note, Samsung announced it sold 40 million Galaxy S III units in the past 7 months.  This number equates to roughly 190,000 Galaxy S III devices being sold daily.
