Numbers: million unit sellers revealed by Samsung

A long-winded Samsung press release on their website, announcing their early 2007 models reveals that the S500 and S600 were the million-unit selling models in 2006. 2006 was the year Samsung made a big jump from 3.5 million to 8.3 million units sold worldwide.

Quoting the above Samsung press release in []:
[The S630/S730, upgraded models of the S500/S600 which are the million unit sellers in 2006, maintain the same user-friendly interface and provide an enhanced grip for comfortable, stable shooting.]

This supports what I've been saying all along that the $100 Samsung S630 (6mp, 3x, AA) is a market-share grabber. This bodes well for Samsung's bold plan to take over the #3 spot worldwide for 2007 as the S630 is even cheaper than its precedessor blockbusters.
