Samsung confirms 10 million Galaxy S smartphones sold As predicted at launch, Samsung has confirmed they have sold 10 million Galaxy S smartphones, just 6 months after launch.
One Galaxy S was sold every two seconds since launch, said the company.

4 million of the units were sold in North America, with another 2.5 million sold in Europe, and 2 million sold in Korea, home of Samsung.

The remaining sales came from different nations around Asia.

Says JK Shin, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics (via IW):

The Galaxy S is the result of our 22 year heritage in the mobile industry. It is the realization of our concept of 'the Smart Life' - we wanted to makes users' lives more convenient, more exciting, and more integrated. Today's milestone shows that we have succeeded: 10 million Galaxy S users around the world are living the Smart Life.


The device sells for all major carriers in the U.S. and is notable for its large 4-inch Super AMOLED display.

I find it unbelievable that all Android powered devices, especially ones as publicized and as powerful as this, weren't released with 2.2 at the start, let alone never getting updated to it. Very unacceptable

Yeah I used to complain about updates too. Then realized the update didn't really change much about the phone.
I think 1 reason for the delay, constant delays shall we say, is the amount of platforms the updates need to cover.
The Android OS covers lord knows how many phones, and most major carriers. So not only is the blame on Android, but also the manufactors, and carriers.
Hence why iphone updates seem to happen more rapidly. Theres only 3 (I may be mistaken there) iphones. iphone 3g, iphone 3gs, and iphone 4. And only 1 carrier, ATT. Plus I think apple stays a little more tight lipped about their updates.
When I get a phone I get it "as is" making it "acceptable" If it gets an update great. If not, it still does everything I expected it to do when I bought it. If I want bigger better faster, I get a new phone.
Just my cheap 2 cents
