Samsung Electronics released its Galaxy S smart phone in July. Till date, it has shipped just less than half of its 7 million out-put in the United States alone.
Sellers have reported brisk sales all over the country. The Android operating system based smart phone is in such high demand that the Chief Marketing Officer admits that inadequate supply may hit sales.
According to the Chief Marketing Officer, who refused to commit as to when supply bottleneck will be cleared, the AMOLED technology used in display is in shortage.
This is creating the bottleneck that is affecting supply. Work is ongoing to improve production to ensure adequate supply.
According to analysts, the quantity being shipped and sold in America was a positive sign for the company.
However, the phone is not in a position to match up with Apple’s latest iPhone. The latest version has sold more than 3 million units in less than a month.
What makes the numbers particularly impressive is the fact that the iPhone is sold by just one operator in America while Galaxy S. phones were sold by all major operators in the American market.
Major suppliers included Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T Mobile, USA and Sprit Nextel. All sellers were keen on continuing supplier of the phone for the festival’s season.
