For those out of the loop, we should note that Samsung brought its Galaxy S handsets to the US market via all major carriers in the country, and via smaller ones too.

AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon have all got their Galaxy S share, in the form of Samsung Captivate, Epic 4G, Vibrant and Fascinate, respectively.

Moreover, Samsung also announced the launch of Galaxy S devices via US Cellular and South Cellular, to expand the availability of its high-end Android phone even more.

During the launch event dedicated to the Verizon-bound Samsung Continuum, Samsung USA’s Paul Golden unveiled that over 3 million Galaxy S units were sold in US until now.

Last month, Samsung announced that it managed to sell over 7 million units globally, and that the US market, along with the South Korean one, contributed to around half of that.

Moreover the company announced not too long ago that it is on track to reach the 2 million sold units in South Korea in the near future (it already passed the 1.6 million mark in October).

The Galaxy S enjoyed increased popularity all around the world ever since its initial release. The mobile phone maker already pushed it to shelves in various markets around the world, including Asia-Pacific, Europe, or America.

The company said previously that it aims at shipping over 10 million Galaxy S devices before the end of the ongoing year, and it seems that it is nearing that milestone pretty fast.
