Samsung Named Number One Android Smartphone Provider in the US

first_imgIn a press release today, Samsung Mobile reported that according to sales numbers in Q3 2010 collected by Gartner, they’re now the number one Android smartphone provider in the United States, and that the Samsung Galaxy S line of handsets just hit the three million mark. The report also notes that Samsung has just over 32% of Android handsets in the United States as of the end of Q3 2010. Samsung got to this point by ditching carrier exclusivity in favor of bringing a family of phones to the table that they could tweak to match the preferences of each individual carrier. Regardless of whether you buy a Samsung Fascinate on Verizon Wireless, a Captivate on AT&T, a Vibrant on T-Mobile, or the Epic 4G on Sprint, you’re still getting a Galaxy S device. The strategy of releasing a family of phones on multiple carriers seems to have paid off.AdChoices广告last_img read more
