Samsung Ships over 5 million Galaxy Notes Worldwide

Posted on Mar 28 2012 - 1:04pm by Brian

We’ve reported numerous times on the success of Samsung’s Galaxy S and S II lines, and now we are proud to be able to do the same for the Galaxy Note!

Initially, the large 5.3 inch phablet was met with some concern regarding its very large form factor, however we, like many of its users were pleasantly surprised to find that not only was it easy to use as a phone, but the S-pen was a great feature that brought some great usability to the mobile platform. Samsung had initially reported that they had sold more than 2 million Galaxy Notes by the end of February and now only 1 month later, Samsung’s supersized phone have shown supersized sales with figures reaching over 5 million units.

The Galaxy S and Galaxy S II have both surpassed the 20 million mark a while ago combining for over 40 million units sold and although this might pale the Galaxy Note in comparison, we have to remember that not only has the device been on the market for a significantly shorter amount of time but also that the Galaxy Note’s 5.3″ form factor was the first of its kind. Taking this into account it is clear that the Note is one of the most popular Android devices out there. This is great news after seeing Samsung pump 10 million dollars into its anti-Apple Super Bowl ad.

Now with 5 million more sales to go before reaching the illustrious 10 million sales mark, the question is will you guys pick up this device? It has arguably some of the best specs of any Samsung phone with its overclocked 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor and 1280×800 Super AMOLED display and a Wacom digitizer. The addition of the S-Pen is really useful for certain applications requiring precision such as photo-editing or my favorite, Draw Somethings pictionary application. Do you guys think that Samsung will be able to hit the 10 million mark by the end of 2012? Let us know in the comments below.
