Samsung ships 6 million Galaxy S4's, breaks own record
There was never any doubt that the Samsung Galaxy S4 would be a runaway success in the market. The only question was would it be able to beat the record of its super popular predecessor.
The Korean company has managed to ship over six million units of its flagship smartphone by last Friday - just two weeks after the handset got its launch. As was to be expected, the majority of those sales (4 million) occurred in the first four days after the market release of the Galaxy S4, but the rate of sales since has been great as well.
If the Samsung Galaxy S4 can keep up the pace, its manufacturer will certainly be able to meet its goal of shipping 10 million units in the first month alone. The sales rate has easily shattered the previous Samsung records set by its predecessors.
The Samsung Galaxy S III took 21 days to reach the 3 million milestone, while the Galaxy S II needed 55 days. The original Galaxy S had registered 3 million sales a full 85 days since its release. So, despite the fierce competition that the Samsung Galaxy S4 faced in the HTC One and Sony Xperia Z, it is selling several times faster than its predecessor and tens of times better than the early Galaxy S's.

True, here in Canada, when you go to future shop and best buys, you can actually see many stocks available behind the cell shop counter.
