Samsung sold 20 million Galaxy S smartphones in 100 days

"Samsung said its global sales of the recently-released Galaxy S III smartphone have hit the 20 million mark in just over three months.
The long-awaited smartphone's roll out to the masses was initially hampered by delays and supply chain issues. It launched in Europe on May 29, but was only brought to the U.S. market in mid-June after major carriers held back on selling what few devices it had due to "manufacturer supply constraints."
But Samsung averted the crisis and managed to reach its 10 million sales in July target set by Samsung mobile business president J.K. Shin, thanks to strong demand in Europe."
