Samsung celebrates 300 million global handset sales for 2011, party in Korean HQ guaranteed

Here’s another reason why Samsung has got to be pleased with itself – the Korean manufacturer has managed to achieve 300 million global handset sales this 2011, a first for the company.

“We are incredibly proud of this record-breaking sales milestone and have exceeded the annual target announced early this year, which is testament to the enduring appeal of Samsung phones with consumers around the world,” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business. “Our performance in the mobile industry remains unrivalled. Samsung is the only manufacturer bringing such an exceptional choice of handsets to customers across a broad range of platforms including Android, Windows Phone and Samsung’s own bada platform — and on a truly global scale. We look forward to extending this success going into 2012.”

The sales were fueled by the excellent performance of the company’s Galaxy line of devices, most notably the Galaxy S II, which managed to nab 10 million sales around the globe and is still a popular smartphone today. Cheers to Samsung – let’s hope they still have a lot of great devices in store for us in 2012.
