Samsung Galaxy Note sales hit 10 million
Samsung shuts the naysayers up once and for all as its Galaxy Note hits the 10 million sales mark
Samsung has sold 10 million of its Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet device.
Back in March we reported that the Note had hit the five million mark. Five months later Samsung has doubled that figure, confirming just how popular the smartphone/tablet hybrid device is with consumers.
Featuring a 5.3-inch display and a stylus the Galaxy Note is one of the most unique devices on the market, succeeding where Dell’s Streak tablet failed.
Samsung recently updated the handset to Android Ice Cream Sandwich and confirmed that it was working on bringing Jelly Bean to the device as well. There’s no word on when the Jelly Bean update will be landing but the fact that Samsung is ‘officially’ working on it is testament to just how popular this handset is.
Know Your Mobile is a big fan of the Galaxy Note, despite its shortcomings, after using it for a month or two. Our only real issue with the device was that it makes every phone you use afterwards seem tiny – even one’s with 4.7-inch displays.
Samsung is expected to release its second generation Galaxy Note smartphone in Q4 2012, perhaps even as early as IFA. Initial reports suggest the Note 2 will feature an even larger display, Samsung’s new Exynos 5 processor, and 2GB of RAM, as well as Samsung’s new S-Pen, which debuted aboard the Galaxy Note 10.1.
