Samsung's Galaxy S III becomes T-Mobile USA's best selling device of all time

 

T-Mobile USA has tweeted today that the Samsung Galaxy S III is their best selling device of all time. This is no surprise considering the popularity of Samsung's Galaxy series of smartphones and is very promising for Android. The device is likely to be Samsung's flagship for at least another 6 months, so T-Mobile USA is likely to expect many more orders.

Did you know the Samsung Galaxy S III is @TMobile's all-time best-selling device? RT if you love your device!

Microsoft is likely hoping that Samsung can match the success with it's upcoming Windows Phone handset, the ATIV S. The device looks almost identical to the S3 but will run Windows Phone 8 instead of Android. The smartphone was the first device to be announced that will run Microsoft's latest mobile OS and packs a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 1.9 megapixel camera on the front.

Would be fun to have a WP8 with the actual S3 specs. A nice quad-core with 2GB of ram
Identical phone, 2 OS's and we can truly see who outshines who.

DAT TouchWiz (words cannot describe my hatred for it).

I bought a One X instead, but kudos to Samsung for launching something as late as July and still topping the record at T-mobile.

Yo iPhone I'ma let you finish, but the S3 was the best selling phone of all time.....of all time!

T-Mobile USA doesn't stock the iPhone. The iPhone is still out selling the S3 by a long shot.

Easy to do when they have one phone. Samsung alone outsells Apple. All of android crushes apple.

I could say the same about the Android OS. Easy to do when you flood the market with crappy devices. Yes good one exists (I use Android), but people need to learn that Apple doesn't need to sell more total or have the most OS marketshare. The key to making a business a success is about making the most profit, that is the bottom line. It doesn't take a genius to work out several phone makers will out sell one.

Yet much more Android sales are accounted for by top end devices than by budget devices. Curious, isn't it!

The point is several makers will outsell one, but if they aren't turning a profit, it's useless. Samsung is, the rest are struggling.

This is exactly why Nokia is making a mistake with their AT&T exclusivity.

I find the whole American cell industry to be infuriating, but I think it will take an act of congress to get a European style (fair) system over here.

Its BS in canada to. Nokia 920 is exclusive to Rogers(The AT&T of canada)...and im on Telus(The T-mo of canada). The reason i make those comparisons, is the exact same hardware matches the carriers across the border.

I hate the idea that devices ive been excited for wont reach my carrier. Big letdowns.
