Samsung Electronics has revealed that it has sold its ten millionth Android-powered Galaxy S smartphone just seven months after it was first released in June 2010.

"The Galaxy S is the result of our 22 year heritage in the mobile industry. It is the realisation 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: ten million Galaxy S users around the world are living the Smart Life," said JK Shin, president and head of Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.

"The Galaxy S has set a new standard in Smarphones and outperformed even our expectations. We are proud of this achievement; to consistently sell over 1.4 million devices per month clearly demonstrates the consumer demand for relevant, empowering mobile experiences. We will continue to meet this demand, delivering leading innovation and building smartphones that will maximise user experiences."

The Samsung Galaxy S was debuted at CTIA Las Vegas in March 2010 and features a four-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen and a 1GHz processor, designed to allow the phone to process high-definition video and Location Based Services.

It also has social networking integration, Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk and Picasa integration as well as access to the Samsung Apps marketplace.

The phone is available in stores across the UAE.
