Samsung’s jet phone gets 2 million pre-orders

Karl Flinders

Samsung is reporting that its jet phone has had over two million pre-orders, which is double the number of Apple iPhones sold in its launch weekend.

The phone, which has been hailed as a direct competitor to Apples latest iPhone, has already had two million pre-orders, according to website Telecoms Korea.

The Jet has a 800MHz processor and a 3.1-inch touch screen.

This compares to one million iPhones sold in three days when it was launched last weekend. Apple's CEO Steve Jobs said: "Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning. With over 50,000 applications available from Apple's revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever."

The Jet phone is not iPhone's only challenger. Nokia started shipping its latest flagship mobile computer, the N97, to more than 75 countries this month.
