Samsung YP-GB1 Galaxy Player sells 20,000 units in 10 Days

The Samsung Galaxy Player we have been following for a while has finally started selling. Not in numbers like the iPod or anything, but this is the first attempt by Samsung to bring a real rival to that market. I think its a great start. Pre-orders went live back in February, and now things are off to a good start for the Samsung Player.

Samsung’s Galaxy Player (YP-GB1) that went on sale in South Korea last month has been going pretty well according to Samsung. They are reporting that they have sold over 20,000 units in the first 10 days. This marks the fastest selling media player by the Korean manufacturer. Pretty good numbers for such a short time.

The Galaxy Player is pretty similar in specs to their also very popular Galaxy S Phones that they also reported have sold over 10 Million. The Galaxy Player spec list includes: 4.0" AMOLED Display, the same 1 Ghz Humminbird Processor, Android 2.2, front and rear cameras, as well as wifi, and bluetooth as expected. Eventually we can expect to see this device in other markets, but for now it is rocking over in South Korea.

    I think old Sammy is going to do well with that player line. . . I don’t think people should expect fast start sales like Apple gets. Apple fans swarm the first few days like fanatics but then the sales slow after those impressive numbers–no one talks about that part all that much. Though the hype makes it sound different. As Steve stated the other day, they’ve sold 100M iPhones to date. That’s it?!?!? From the hype you would think they’ve sold at least one billion. Heck, Nokia sells more than that in a year and Android sold 67M in 2010 and will easily cross 100M in 2011.

    Samsung knows how to sell these types of things and now that they are working with a winning platform, Android, I think they will show some impressive numbers–they estimate to sell 50M smartphones in 2011 ;)
