Samsung Revels In High Galaxy S II Pre-Order Numbers

Although the powerful new Galaxy S II is just one among Samsung’s scores of handsets, it’s an important one, and the company is happy to report that it’s blowing up. It’s just hit 200,000 pre-orders in Korea, Samsung’s home market, and will likely pile up a couple million sales there before its day in the sun is over. And although US release information isn’t available yet, I’ve seen a good amount of chatter on mobile sites from excited users.

We could tell from our hands-on at MWC that it was indeed a contender, though of course Apple has some issues with the design.
