Posted in Nintendo by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2010

Nintendo saw a resurgence in sales during Thanksgiving week. Starting from November 21 and running through this past Sunday, the company shipped 900,000 DS, DSi and DSi XL systems as well as 600,000 Wii units.

It credited the spike to the usual Black Friday push as well as new colors for the devices. The company didn’t say whether or not either figure was a record for the week, but both are well above Nintendo’s average sales results through the rest of the year.

And if you’ve played the game, it’s easy to see why. They did nearly everything right and it is an awesome experience. Call of Duty Black Ops has now made more than Modern Warefare 2 did when it went on sale in the first five days, and it has also broken other records.

After all, people are ready to start their holiday shopping. And if they reach that goal, they will start 2011 off right. The Kinect is just $149 when purchased alone, although it does come packaged with the Xbox 360 for $299 or $399, depending on how much storage space you choose.

LG has a hit on it’s hands with the Optimus One. One million units sold isn’t big news these days for smartphone sales, but when you reach that number quickly it should tell you something. LG’s Optimus One has sold a million in just 40 days after initial launch.

And it’s still rolling out globally, so those numbers are impressive. Verizon is about to pick it up November 18th as the Vortex, so expect those numbers to grow. LG is very happy right now.

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2010

According to Gartner’s third quarter smartphone data, Android has a 25.5% slice of worldwide smartphone sales, helping it achieve the second place as an operating system, right behind Symbian. Apple’s iOS dropped a bit compared to last year, with 16.6% this time.

Symbian is still at the top spot this year at 36.6%, but their position is being threatened. Global mobile phone sales totaled 417 million units in the third quarter of 2010, a 35 percent increase from the third quarter of 2009.

Samsung sells 3M Galaxy S phones in the US

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on November 9th, 2010

Awhile back, Samsung announced that it had sold 5 million Galaxy S phones globally and 2 million of those were from the US. Now Samsung USA’s Paul Golden has confirmed that the company has sold more than 3 million Galaxy S units in the US and about 7 million globally.

According to Paul, there is a high demand for all of the Galaxy S devices, but the shortage of Super AMOLED displays is causing some supply issues. Either way these are impressive stats and if you have a Galaxy S phone, they thank you for your purchase.

Kinect selling out across the country

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2010

It looks like Microsoft’s Kinect is really paying off. Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and GameStop are all reporting that they are selling out of the Kinect hardware, though there are still some 360 bundles available apparently.

Many gamers aren’t drawn in by the family-friendly advertising, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the sales. It just went on sale a few days ago. It brings back memories of Wii shortages all over again. Things are looking great right now, however look at how quickly “Wii fever” dropped. Will the same thing happen here after initial shortages? Time will tell. But for now, Microsoft is loving it.

Microsoft expects to sell 5 Million Kinect units this fall

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

Microsoft has high hopes for the Kinect. In fact, the company is expecting to sell five million Kinect motion sensors through the holiday shopping season. This new figure is quite a leap from their original expectation of three million units for the same time period.

Head of Microsoft’s entertainment unit, Don Mattrick, was quoted recently saying that Presales have exceeded expectations. Can they do it? We’ll see. The Kinect will hit more than 30,000 retail locations, with midnight events scheduled at 5,000 stores for the launch, so they have a good chance.

Microsoft sells 240 Million copies of Windows 7 in 12 months

Posted in Microsoft by Conner Flynn on October 21st, 2010

Microsoft has announced that it has sold more than 240 million copies of Windows 7 (which was launched a year ago this week), Those numbers make it both Microsoft’s and the industry’s fastest-selling OS. The company needed it too. Windows 7 has helped the company overcome much of the negative consumer opinion after the launch of its Vista OS.

It should be noted that Apple has sold about 13.8 million Mac machines worldwide, but still isn’t large enough to compete in sheer new OS installs. It has however received a much faster adoption of its latest OS version.

Move sales around 1.5 million in Europe, 300K estimated for US

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on October 17th, 2010

Sony’s PlayStation Move motion controller is definitely moving across Europe. Sony Europe’s Andrew House noted “very significant sales” for the Move, saying that it has sold “somewhere in the region of 1.5 million units for the new controller across just Europe.” Sales have exceeded Sony’s original hopes, so it looks like the company will likely increase production of the peripheral.

Sales may not be as great in America, however. In a report released to the media, Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter estimated that the motion controller sold roughly 300,000 units in its US debut. That includes Move console bundles; though SCEA has not released official sales figures yet.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on October 6th, 2010

We knew Samsung’s Galaxy S was on track to kick down some serious sales, but it didn’t take long at all to reach five million. And Samsung is only now getting around to introducing the Galaxy S handset in Japan. Meanwhile the rest of the world has already bought five million units of the Galaxy S phone family.

Over two million of those sales have been made in the US and over one million can be found in South Korea.

Apple to ship more iPads in 2011 than Android tablets combined?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 27th, 2010

Looks like Apple will dominate the tablet market for at least the next year, according to Canaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley. He estimates that Apple will ship 13.4 million iPads in 2010 and 25.5 million in 2011. The closest to Apple is Samsung’s Galaxy Tab, which will reach 1.5 million by the end of the year and move another six million in 2011.

The combined Android platform fares a bit better, with Dell and Motorola contributing two million and three million tablets of their own next year, but Apple will still have most of the sales. This is due its headstart and its positive UI experience.

iPad killing Notebook sales by as much as 50%?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2010

We all know that Apple’s iPad is a smashing success, but just how many netbooks and notebook computer sales is it destroying? Well, Best Buy’s CEO has dropped a shocking statistic out of nowhere.

According to him, the iPad has cannibalized sales of notebook computers by at much as 50 percent! If true and if those figures are consistent across many retailers, then maybe Apple is killing netbooks faster then anyone thought.

Samsung says it will sell 10 million Galaxy Tabs

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

So, we are still waiting on the final word of pricing and availability for the Galaxy Tab, but Samsung is already making some pretty bold claims about it. Samsung product executive Hankil Yoon said that the company expects to ship 10 million Galaxy Tabs and grab a third of the global tablet market by next year.

That’s pretty bold talk. Yoon also added that Samsung eventually plans to introduce a whole family of Galaxy Tab devices, though it’s unclear if those factor into his numbers. We will see if they can manage numbers like that in time.

Samsung claims to sell 1 million Galaxy S smartphones in 45 days in the US

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2010

Samsung claims that they’ve sold a million Galaxy S phones in the US over just a month and a half. We know those aren’t iPhone 4 worthy numbers, but that is pretty amazing.

The success isn’t limited to the US. It took Samsung just three weeks to sell a million Galaxy S smartphones globally and they did that before the device even arrived in the US. The company has sold 300,000 in S. Korea alone during that time and 900,000 for the quarter.
