Samsung Wave sales reach 1M, Galaxy S keeps the pace

Today Samsung announced an important milestone for the first handset to run their very own Bada OS. The SuperAMOLED-packing Samsung S8500 Wave sales have exceeded 1 million units worldwide, just under four short weeks after its release.

It might not sound quite impressive if you compare it to the iPhone 4 sales, that reached 1.7 million in only three days, but remember that the first iPhone needed more than two months (74 days to be specific) to reach the 1 million milestone.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S sales totaled 300 000 in South Korea. Only one week after the 200 000th unit was sold by SK Telecom 100K more units have flown off the South Korean telecom shelves. Considering that there are plenty of Galaxy S versions available elsewhere we suspect that the Android-running superphone has at least matched (or maybe even exceeded) the Wave sales, despite being on the market for half as long.

Good days to be a Samsung shareholder, these seem to be.
