Despite being sued to hell and beyond by Apple, Samsung still manages to have some good news in the press. Remember the Samsung Galaxy S? Sure you do, how could you not. This was the device that sold over 120,000 units in just a matter of days, now it has gone way beyond that and looking to become Samsung’s best selling Android smartphone ever.
According to Sammy, the Galaxy S II is doing quite well. In the first 55 days since the device was introduced to the market, Samsung has sold over 3 million of this bad boy and there seems to be no end in sight as to when things might slow down. The previous Galaxy smartphone could only manage to pull this off in 85 days, that is an extra 30 days compared to how long it took the Galaxy S II.
