The U.S. launch of Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy S III is going well, says Raymond James' Tavis McCourt: checks with carrier stores indicate the S III typically sold out 2-4 days after sales began, and that the phone is now the top-selling model at AT&T and Verizon. McCourt thinks RIMM and Samsung's Android rivals have more to lose than AAPL, whom he has a Strong Buy rating on. Analysts estimate Samsung sold 50M smartphones globally in Q2.
