Despite naysayers predicting a flop, it turns out the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note was a success with consumers all around the world, with Samsung selling more than 10 million units world wide since the device’s debut last October.
If that number sounds impressive to you, don’t forget that its cousin, the Galaxy S3, managed to sell 10 million units in less than 2 months — but that might have something to do with the device being made available on every carrier as opposed to only AT&T (here in the states). Samsung hasn’t always churned out chart toppers, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 only managed to break 1.4 million units after being available for the past 2 years. And for those wondering, the iPhone 4S sold 4 million units during the its first 2 days of availability.
Here’s to hoping Samsung hits one out of the ballpark with the Galaxy Note 2, giving it the phablet the same treatment as the S3, launching the device around the globe and across multiple carriers (especially here in the US).
