Samsung becomes top U.S. Android manufacturer, sells 1 million Galaxy Tabs ahead of schedule

Samsung has announced that they have shipped over 3 million Samsung Galaxy S phones across the globe since the handset’s debut in mid June.  However, what’s even more impressive is the fact that the Samsung Galaxy Tab has already sold over 1 million units, exceeding Samsung’s 2010 sales forecast a month early.  Samsung has changes their forecast and now believes that they will sell a total of 1.5 million Galaxy Tab devices before the end of the year.

If that wasn’t enough, Samsung America is also touting the latest Gartner report which indicates that Samsung’s Android powered handsets accounted for 32.1 percent of all Android phones sold in the U.S. market in Q3.  That percentage puts Samsung ahead of Motorola, making them the top Android manufacturer for the quarter.

The Samsung Galaxy S lineup may have its flaws (GPS issues and no Android 2.2 update in sight), but it’s apparent that consumers seem to trust the Samsung brand.  Having a Galaxy S phone on all major service providers in the U.S. has certainly helped the phone reach as many consumers as possible.  Since I’m not a huge fan of exclusive deals, I hope other manufacturers take notice and follow in Samsung’s footsteps.
