    With the help of their Galaxy S class phones available from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and others, Samsung has climbed to the top of the heap for total market penetration in Android phones in the U.S. This info comes to us from the third party analytics firm Gartner.

    In their report they indicate that from Q4 2009 to Q3 2010 Samsung's Android smart-phones jumped from 9.2% to a whopping 32.1% of the U.S. Android market! You can see more on this over at BGR.

    Love my new Fascinate. If only it had 2.2, a working GPS and good signal... all suppose to change within the month.

    Earlier this week the Moto CEO commented about an event that would impact Moto's first quarter of 2011. Wonder if it will have the same impact on Samsung?

    Wonder what their sales figures would have been if the X was distributed over the same number of service providers? Personally, I failed to see the popularity of the Fascinate. In my opinion, the screen was too darn blue for me, oversaturated colors, could not read as good as other screens with polarizer sunglasses on, wasn't really that fast for normal net surfing when comparing to the X, and it felt cheap.

    But, others must love it.

    ^lol....thats funny. And probably too true. All I know is I didnt really starting using smartphones for the other things they could do until I got my Droid 1...

    I had an Omnia 1 running Win Mo.....sad times back then....it got to the point where I barely used it as a phone...

    ^Yea....its well documented with the Galaxy S line...GPS and lag issues due to the file system(?) also...

    IMO...out the box the Galaxy S line is ok.....once rooted and issues fixed(?) its a beast...

    IMO...out the box the X is the better phone overall.
