Just received this news from Samsung. Samsung Galaxy S II sells out after the first weekend. Not sure how many units were available. But I guess the demand is strong, based on the pictures.
GALAXY S II SELLS OUT AFTER FIRST WEEKEND
Singapore, 27 June 2011 – Samsung Electronics has surpassed all expectations in sales of its GALAXY S II smartphone, with all units selling out after its Singapore retail launch on Friday 24 June. The flagship Android™-powered GALAXY S II is the successor to the best-selling GALAXY S, which has sold a record 14 million units globally since its debut last year.
Mr Winston Goh, Product Marketing Manager – Telecomunications at Samsung Asia Pte Ltd said, “We are delighted with the unexpected demand for the GALAXY S II and see this as strong validation from our customers on the quality and attractiveness of our mobile phones.”
