Samsung: Galaxy Note 3 shipments have crossed 10 million mark [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Just around a month and a half after the Galaxy Note 3 crossed the 5 million units shipped milestone, Samsung's latest phone/tablet hybrid has managed to double its shipment total.
Samsung today revealed that shipments of the Galaxy Note 3 have surpassed 10 million total units since the device's launch at the tail end of September. To compare, the Galaxy Note II took 4 months to cross the 10 million units shipped milestone, while the original Galaxy Note reached the same mark in 9 months. The Note 3 is currently available in a total of 58 countries around the world, and Samsung says that sales of its newest Note family member remain high in China, other Asian countries and in Europe.
Shortly before the Galaxy Note 3 launched in September, Samsung co-CEO J.K. Shin predicted that his company's newest phablet would surpass shipments of 10 million units. Not only has the Note 3 done just that, but it did so in less time than it took the Note II to reach the 5 million units shipped milestone. While the Note 3 may not selling quite as quickly as Samsung's flagship Galaxy S 4, a total of over 10 million units shipped in a month and a half is still a pretty impressive stat, and it'll be interesting to see how many Note 3s that Samsung can move through the holiday season.

UPDATE: Samsung has confirmed that its moved 10 million units of the Galaxy Note 3. The company announced the news on its official Samsung Tomorrow blog, adding the Note 3 to its "10 Million Seller Club" that also includes devices like the SGH-D900, the original Galaxy S and the Galaxy Note II.
