Although we may not be able to get our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note here in the US yet, the hybrid smartphone / tablet is already experiencing great success. According to Samsung, the company has already shipped more than 1 million units of the Galaxy Note globally. Although the number of units shipped is always greater than the number of devices in end-users' hands, this figure is still impressive, especially considering the fact that the Galaxy Note has been available for less than two months. The 5.3-inch Galaxy Note is expected to be available in the US next year.
Samsung Electronics Ships over 1 Million Units of Galaxy Note Globally
Samsung’s flagship smart device Galaxy Note has reached 1 million global shipping.
Samsung Electronics said on the 29th that it has shipped more than 1 million units of Galaxy Note globally. The worldwide sales of Galaxy Note are also on the rise in Europe and Asia including France, Germany, Hongkong and Taiwan. The rapid global sales of Galaxy Note are notable since it is creating a new market for something between smartphone and tablet pc. The speed of the global sales is expected to accelerate further next year when it will be available in the US.
Recently, Financial Times reviewed highly of Galaxy Note, commenting it as “a happy medium for consumers who want to carry just one device, rather than both a smartphone and a tablet and whatever other portable gadget they pick up on their way out”.
A Samsung official also said “1 million global shipping of Galaxy Note means it has well positioned itself as a market creator,” also adding “Samsung will continuously strengthen its leadership in the global smartphone market as well as create new markets with innovative devices.”
