Samsung Galaxy S III Pre-Orders at an All-Time High
With 9 million pre-orders on the Galaxy S III already recorded by Samsung late last week and with Vodafone and The Carphone Warehouse seeing accelerating demand for the recently-launched smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy SIII could very well be the Android phone with the most number of pre-orders in history. And Vodafone has already confirmed this fact, as it told The Inquirer that pre-orders on the latest Samsung Galaxy smart phone had been overwhelming, to say the least. A spokesperson for Vodafone said that the Samsung Galaxy S III is the “most pre-ordered Android device ever brought into their Smartphone line-up to date” and response from customers had been highly encouraging.
9 Million Pre-orders from Samsung
The South Korean press has reported late last week that up to 9 million pre-orders have been received by Samsung on their Galaxy S III smartphone. More than 100 operators from around the world have ordered the smartphone moreover, as reported by The Korea Economic Daily. While there are speculations as to whether Samsung will be able to meet this colossal demand, one company official has disclosed that Samsung’s factory in South Korea is churning out 5 million units monthly.
