Samsung Galaxy Note Sales Reach 5m In Just 5 Months

Samsung has announced that more than five million units of its Galaxy Note smartphone and tablet hybrid, dubbed the ‘phablet’, have already been sold worldwide, just five months after going on sale.
The device was released in the UK in November and sales reached the one million mark within one month.
According to the South Korean firm, the Note’s growing popularity is largely due to its impressive 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen – the biggest of any phone currently on the market – and S-Pen stylus that enables users to jot down notes and interact with certain applications.
Other impressive features include a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, an 8MP camera with LED flash and a 2MP front-facing camera .
In a statement, it said: “Thanks to the fast selling Galaxy Note, Samsung Electronics has gained about two thirds of the South Korean mobile phone market share, making Samsung the leading mobile phone provider in Korea in addition to China, France, Spain and others.”
Samsung also announced it will be rolling out an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for the Galaxy Note in the second quarter, which will include exclusive apps tailored to the mobile and its stylus.
