Unlock your Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S3, S4 and Note 2 for free, and travel the world without being stuck to just one network for your service. It’s easy to unlock the devices, once you know how, as you will find out in this article.
According to FNN News in South Korea, holiday sales and promotions of Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 10.1 boosted the company’s sales of tablets to more than 40 million.
FNN News said that in the first quarter of 2013 Samsung Electronics sold 9.1 million tablets, in the second quarter it sold 8.4 million, in the third the company sold 10.5 million, and in the fourth quarter, it sold even more — approximately 12 million. Last year, for the entire year, Samsung only sold about 16.6 million tablets.
If these figures are correct, Samsung is in second place in overall sales in 2013 of tablets only to Apple’s iPad. According to Apple, they sold in the first quarter of 2013 19.5 million, in the second quarter, and 14.6 million units, in the third quarter 14.1. Though Apple hasn’t yet reported their fourth quarter sales of iPads, it’s been estimated that they will beat last year’s fourth quarter figure of around 23 million iPads sold.
