The milestone references "global channel sales" of the Galaxy S4 rather than how many devices are actually in the hands of end users but it's still a hugely impressive figure.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy S4 is estimated to be selling at "a rate of four units per second."

The Galaxy S4 reaching the 10 million shipment mark in less than a month is a new record for Samsung and makes it the company's fastest selling smartphone of all time.

By contrast, the Galaxy S III took 50 days after its launch to ship the same amount of units, while the S II took five months and the original Galaxy S took almost seven months.

Samsung's CEO and President of the IT & Mobile Communications Division, JK Shin, released a statement marking the Galaxy S4 milestone.

"On behalf of Samsung, I would like to thank the millions of customers around the world who have chosen the Samsung GALAXY S4. At Samsung we'll continue to pursue innovation inspired by and for people."

In addition to announcing the milestone, Samsung says it also plans to release more color variants of the Galaxy S4. Among the new colours set to launch in the coming months include "Blue Arctic", "Red Aurora", "Purple Mirage" and "Brown Autumn".

The Galaxy S4 is currently sold in "White Mist" and "Black Forest" colours.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
