700,000 Samsung GALAXY Note LTE units sold in South Korea
With Samsung in their backyard, South Koreans have been able to purchase the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE since the waning weeks of last year. Samsung, of course, is HQ'd in the country, so it meant that the beast of a handset was available well before the Super Bowl there. Judging from the numbers racked up in the country, Samsung has another hit on its hands. So far, 700,000 units have been sold in South Korea. That figure, which counts sales to distributors and sales channels, does not include purchases made by end users. Still, it represents a whopping 66% of all LTE handsets available in the country.

South Korean sales are  important to Samsung as they often give an early indication that the manufacturer has a hot phone on its hands. When the Samsung Galaxy S II was launched last year, the device quickly took off in the home country on the way to a staggering 5 million units sold in South Korea alone.

Now the smartphone with the huge 5.3 inch Super AMOLED screen is ready for pre-orders in the States starting on Super Bowl Sunday. To help the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE in making its debut in the U.S., Samsung has spent some serious coinage for a 90 second ad that will run during the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest. And exciting as that must be for Samsung, the strong start for the model in its hometown must have the manufacturer's executives thinking that they have another big winner.

The galaxy note will sell well if maybe not prolifically due to it being in a very specific market of its on. At the same the same time its good to see samsung innovating and trying different things in the market.

Its also seems apple is getting its comeuppance for trying to sue and dominate that same market and its beloved iproducts are now getting banned from sale starting in germany:

It is a old news. Apple already resumed their 3G/UMTS devices in German. Because the patent Motorola used against Apple is an industry standard patent. So it should be licensed under FRAND.

I still love how fools thought this device wouldn't sell. It is exactly what a lot of people are looking for. A near tablet experience with the ability to make phone calls. It's the perfect size, it's not too big like 7 inch tablets are, that would look so dumb by your ear. But it's not too small that it looks like another android phone. Super snappy processor with LTE and a good camera. I have also heard it has really good battery life as well.

If you don't need a tablet but a bigger smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Note is way to go. I'm sure it will sell more than that by end of this year. Samsung made so many great phone, I'm wondering how Windows Phone 8 will look on the note.

I've got the GSM version and I LOVE IT! You should see the reaction people have when you first show them.

First, they're shocked, then they laugh at how big it is (a few that's what she said jokes later) that turns into green envy when they see the screen turned on. Priceless.
