UK: Samsung Galaxy S3 smashed pre-orders records at Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.
The Samsung Galaxy S III has already smashed preorder records at Vodafone and retail chain Carphone Warehouse, according to the Inquirer. That includes orders for the previous iteration of Samsung's flagship line, the Galaxy S II.
What began has a solid phone with the original Galaxy S (and its variants around the world) has grown into a juggernaut for Samsung, which has topped Apple as the world's largest smartphone manufacturer and which has a device that's the closest to the iPhone in popularity. Samsung has managed this feat through a combination of slick designs, high-end specifications, wide distribution, and the marketing heft to push the device.
Samsung's success comes as all of the other Android makers struggle with selling their devices, or overcoming recent weakness in sales. HTC, LG, Motorola, and Sony have all dealt with challenges over the past year, something Samsung has managed to avoid.
