Samsung Mobile has surpassed all other handset manufacturers in the third quarter, by increasing its Android market share to 32.1%. That compares to a 9.2% share in Q4 2009 (numbers from Gartner), which is a remarkable progress. There is no stopping them now, with their new tablet the Galaxy Tab already sold 600,000 units and the Nexus S rumored to be out soon it will be no surprise if the they surpass Nokia in the near future.
The major success factor, Samsung Galaxy S, is available via all major carriers in the US, as variants like Captivate, Mesmerize, Vibrant, Fascinate etc. The is also available from Cellular South. All of the phones have a 4 inch AMOLED touch display, a 1 GHz Humming bird processor, and a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities among many other features. Hopefully this is sending messages to the main rivals of Android market, Motorola and HTC, to come up with new plans and phones to give a tough competition. Motorola already has plans to release its Olympus, a super Smartphone, with AT&T in the beginning months of next year. We are also sure that HTC must be having its own plans to increase its sales.
