Following the success of their Galaxy S Android smartphone, Samsung have announced revised sales targets through the this year and into 2011. Initially set at 18 million sales, Sammy is now aiming for 25 million sales, a projection that would put them 4th in global smartphone sale behind Nokia, RIM and Apple.
A cocky move, you may argue, but Samsung’s figures seem to back up the ambitious target. As well as the 3 million-odd Galaxy S Android handsets sold since its July launch, Samsung are also lining up a range of Windows Phone and home-grown bada handsets that could just see them hit those lofty goals.
Despite working with numerous operating systems, Android will remain the company’s OS of choice however. “We are Prioritizing our Android platform. Android is very open and flexible, and there is a consumer demand for it,” YH Lee, head of marketing at Samsung Mobile.
