Samsung Galaxy S II Performs Great in its First Five Months

Written on September 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Samsung Galaxy S II had surpassed the record of the original Galaxy S as it obtained over 10 million on sales in just five months.

Samsung cracked another milestone on Sunday, and said that the Galaxy S II passed 10 million sales on its first five months on market. This surpasses the original Galaxy S that took seven months to hit the same amount. The largest piece of Galaxy S II sales 3.6 million, was in Samsung’s native South Korea.

Europe is almost as equal in importance and has seen 3.4 million S II units trade hands to date. Southeast Asia outside of Korea was considerably less of a factor at 2.3 million. The goals include very few of North America, as the Galaxy S II only went on sale in Canada through Bell in July and was otherwise limited to unlock full price versions until this month.

Nintendo 3DS Gets Second Highest Sales Record

Written on September 06, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Japanese 3DS sales strike 384,000 units last month; doubles the device's July total.

The 3DS price drop last month has indeed worked out favorably for the Nintendo company. As revealed by Enterbrain, there are over 384,000 handheld units that were sold in Japan last August — which is 2.6 times the amount of devices being sold in July.

This is considered to be the second best-performing month for the Nintendo 3DS. Last March, when the handheld was first launched, the company was able to market more than 430,000 units.

In August 11, the 3DS faced a price cut-off of ¥10,000 to ¥15,000. The price drop was reported several weeks earlier, which results to an expected sales decrease. After the drop, the units were then reported to have the second highest sales record since its launching (February 26 launch not included).

Stay tuned to AllWeLike for news regarding 3DS sales in North America.

iPad Dominates 2010, Will 2011 Tell the Same Tale?

Written on March 31, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

2010 was the year of the iPad, as the Apple tablet wipes the floor with the competitions' faces. Will 2011 tell the same tale?

The numbers are in (well, most of it), as iPad completely wiped the floor with the competitions’ faces by generating almost 100% of sales revenue in 2010. According to Gartner, out of the total world spendings on tablets of $9.6 billion, Apple’s first born tablet – the iPad – took the lion’s share with $9.566 billion, leaving the scraps of millions to other tablets that went on sale.

Market share for 2010 however, tells another tale as IDC downplays the iPad to 83% compared to the rest of its competitors. Still an impressive feat, but in the end, it’s the money generated that matters instead of market shares.
