One cannot deny that the closest competitor to the iPhone from Apple hails from South Korea – the Samsung Galaxy series in particular, and if you want to narrow it down further, we are talking about the Samsung Galaxy S2 and more recently, the Galaxy S3 (which some say that it is a pre-emptive strike against the next generation iPhone). Word has it that Samsung had already sold 24 million units of the Galaxy S, and 28 million units of the Galaxy S2 until today.
Obviously, one will also need to draw comparisons to the iPhone and its worldwide sales. Basically, at the end of 2010, 73.5 million iPhones were sold, and if you were to take into consideration the sales figures of the iPhone in 2011 as well as the first two quarters of this year, we are looking at an additional 144.44 million handsets – bringing the grand total to approximately 218 million iPhones sold to date ever since it hit the market in 2007, at least according to Wikipedia.
Do you think that the iPhone sales figures will ever be outstripped by other handsets in the future? [Translated Page]
