Gartner Names Samsung Top Android Smartphone Provider Based on Retail Sales

Dec 08, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Samsung Telecommunications America, a mobile phone provider in the U.S., announced that third party research firm Gartner reported Samsung as the top Android smartphone provider in terms of sell through to end users in the United States for the third quarter of 2010.

According to Gartner, Samsung Mobile captured 32.1 percent of the U.S. Android smartphone market in the third quarter of 2010 based on retail sales, an increase from 9.2 percent of the Android smartphone market in the fourth quarter of 2009.

"I want to personally thank everyone who selected a Galaxy S smartphone as their mobile handset of choice," said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Mobile. "Neither of these wonderful accomplishments would have been possible without the loyalty and support of our customers." The Samsung Galaxy S portfolio is packed with features and services, including a brilliant 4-inch Super AMOLED display screen, 1GHz Hummingbird Application Processor, Samsung's Media Hub movie and TV programming download service and a full array of entertainment, messaging and social networking capabilities. The Galaxy S portfolio will be upgraded to the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system in the near future.
