Samsung has shipped 1 million Galaxy S smartphones in the U.S. since their mid-July launch, the company said Monday.

Samsung said the Android-based devices' success can be attributed in part to an aggressive ad campaign. The company has advertised Galaxy S phones on several major TV network shows. It was also quick to point out that its decision to offer the Galaxy S through multiple carriers has helped the smartphones attract customers.

Galaxy S is a line of Android smartphones, not a single device. The models released so far have been the Samsung Captivate for AT&T and the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile. Sprint will start selling the Samsung Epic 4G, starting Tuesday. And Verizon Wireless will introduce the Samsung Fascinate this fall.
