Korean electronic giant is all set to nake a record sell for its Galaxy S line of smart phones.Informationweek reported that Samsung sold a whopping 9.3 millions of Galaxy S , android base smart phones and is expecting that with this closing year it will touch 10 million mark (thanks to December festive season). Last October Samsung launched this Galaxy S in India . Initially it was overpriced at 31000 INR but now the prices are coming down to around 27 k - 27.5 k . Still an overpriced phone for 'budget' users given that it ships with old Android 2.1 (Eclaire).
In less than 48 hours, François Simond within android community got this going, he extracted the gingerbread ROM from the newly released Google’s Nexus S (hardware by Samsung) and got it working on old Galaxy S. Being the first attempt to burn Gingerbread, it is not 100% migration. Galaxy S with Gingerbread is not supporting WIFI and GPS currently. But soon this will be fixed soon given the proactive android community.
