Samsung Galaxy Note worldwide shipments surpass 1 million, coming to the U.S. in 2012Alex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Today Samsung has taken the time to strap a party hat onto the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, announcing that it's shipped 1 million units of the stylus-packing device to date. That's not the only good news that Samsung had to share, though, as the company also noted that the Galaxy Note will be available in the U.S. next year. No other details on a Stateside launch were mentioned.
Good news, right? Of course, those of you obsessively following the Galaxy Note since its September debut know that this isn't the first time we've gotten wind of a U.S.-bound Note. Some photos of a Note with American-style (sans physical home button) Android navigation keys surfaced last month, and just a couple of weeks ago rumors began circulating that the GNote will be heading to AT&T, complete with LTE connectivity. We haven't heard anything on the U.S. Note since, but with claims of an unveiling coming as soon as CES in January, we may not have much longer to wait before the device is officially official. Stay tuned!
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.”
