Samsung announced today that it has sold 10 million Galaxy S II smartphones worldwide in five months.While that’s nowhere close to the amount of iPhones sold (Apple ships more than 20 million iPhones every three months), it’s still very impressive for a single Android phone model.

That number will likely grow a lot now that the Galaxy S II is available in the U.S. It’s already available on Sprint, and will arrive on AT&T on October 2. T-Mobile should announce a launch date very soon.

Still, the competition is only going to get tougher once Apple announces the iPhone 5 on October 4.
