Well it appears the iPhone is no longer the only pre-order juggernaut. Accordning to the Korea Economic Daily Samsung has taken 9 million pre-orders for the Galaxy S3. The Galaxy series of Samsung phones has been their flagship Android set since 2010. This is a major achievement for Samsung as it took almost half a year for them to reach the 10 million unit mark with the Galaxy S2.
This bodes well not only for Samsung but Android as well. There have been few breakout Android devices and none that can compare with this kind of reception. The Galaxy S3 doesn't go on sale until may 29th so we could see this number increase significantly. iPhone is still the biggest baddest dog on the block in terms of single device sales, but if Android manufacturers can replicate Samsungs model Apple better watch out.
