    Legal Verdict Against Samsung Might Have Helped Their Sales According to New Study


    According to the managing director of equity research at Global Equities Research, Trip Chowdhry, the verdict against Samsung might have actually helped the sales of the Galaxy S III some right after the trial. According to an unscientific study he did, there was a surge of sales of the Galaxy S III on the weekend following the announcement of the verdict. Additionally, according to earlier reports, during this entire last month the Galaxy S III has outsold the iPhone 4S in the United States. Here is a quote with some of the details,

    According to Trip Chowdhry, the managing director of equity research at Global Equities Research, customers “rushed” to buy Samsung’s flagship phone after the verdict was announced.

    Chowdhry investigated multiple retail outlets — including Costco (NASDAQ: COST), AT&T (NYSE: T), Sprint (NYSE: S), and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) — to get an update on how the Galaxy S III performed this weekend.

    Two out of three Costco stores were completely sold out of the T-Mobile and AT&T versions of the phone. The third location had the T-Mobile version in stock, but was sold out of the AT&T version.

    All five of the AT&T stores that Chowdhry investigated experienced “significant sales” of the device, which has been outselling the iPhone 4S this month. The Galaxy S III has also outsold Apple’s smartphone at all five of the Sprint stores and all three of the Verizon stores that Chowdhry examined. However, only two of those Sprint locations had completely sold out of the Samsung-built device.
    Now, of course, it's important to mention that part of the reason the SGS3 has outsold the iPhone 4S is because many folks already know that the iPhone 5 will be coming out soon, and are likely holding off on their purchases. The launch of the iPhone 5 will be huge, so it will be interesting to see how well the current and future Android lineup, including the S3 hold up to the new Apple juggernaut. We are pretty confident it will do just fine.

    Something I've learned in my short life..bad press is still press.. everybody is looking at Samsung right now... and so the new devices they're announcing, are being seen by even more people than normal...


    There's also a buzz from people, saying that Samsung is so much like iOS and its half the price... so its a bargain to get a samsung.. same thing, half the price....


    While I don't agree with all of that...others may..

    Apple: Samsung stole a ton of our ideas!
    Public: So that means Samsung has integrated a large chunk of Apple's features?
    Apple: Yes!
    Public: And they've been undercutting y'all to profit on your features?
    Apple: Yes!
    Public: So Samsung phones have a ton of Apple features, but they're at a lower price? SCORE!
    Apple: ..h-hey! Hold on a second!

    Be careful what you wish for, Apple....

    Also, both companies will be totally fine after all this.

    i hope not. I hope Apple, in their arrogance, calls 2012, the 1984 of Apple's dominance when someone else throws a sledgehammer into a screen of Jobbie

    Of course the s III is still outselling the 4s. There is no comparison. A better indicator will be a comparison with the sales of the iPhone 5, assuming it is released in September as announced.

    The best comparison will really be all top-tier Androids vs the iPhone 5 because there are some AMAZING devices dropping before years end. I wish I were filthy, disgustingly rich just so I could buy them all to toy with.

    Good point. It will be an interesting 6-9 months.

    Despite the fact that iPhone sales might be down due to the impending release of a new model, I still find it amazing that any one Android model would be outselling it - given that there are dozens of great Android phones available for sale right now.

    The steady, relentless march of Android continues ever onward!

    Oh, and one other thing: the subsidized price of a Galaxy S3 is exactly the same as the base iPhone 4S. So can we PLEASE stop with the "only sell because they're cheap" crap?!

    Well the problem this caused for Apple is that since the trial ended with a decision basically saying that Samsung is the same as Apple, now people are realizing that since they are the same, why would they spend the extra money on Apple when they could go with Samsung for less.
