Much to probably everybody’s surprise the IPhone has been outsold by the Samsung Galaxy S in Japan. Although the IPhone is relatively new in Japan, having been released this past June, the Galaxy S has managed to out sell it in the one week it has been on the market. This may be all due to the hype of the Galaxy S series or the Super AMOLED screen on the Galaxy S, but if they are able to keep these sales and win out over the IPhone, it would be a huge plus for Samsung on the international market. Now that they have been able to put a hand in above Apple in the mobile market in Japan, Samsung Hopes to be able to compete or surpass the IPad with their very own Galaxy S Tab, which has been a huge hit on the other markets.
