Following the reports last October of global Galaxy S series sales topping 30 million, Samsung says that South Korean sales of its flagship device, the Galaxy S II, have exceeded 5 million units. To put that into perspective, South Korea contains around 48 million human beings, of which some 20 million are mobile phone users. Some basic number crunching will tell you that suggests that a quarter of mobile phone users -- or more than 10% of the country's entire population -- now own a Galaxy S II.
In terms of overall market share across all mobile phones, Sammy now claims to hold 53 percent of the Korean market, seeing off competition from Apple, as well as local rival LG.
