Samsung has sold 38 million Galaxy Notes so far
We've seen the big reveal of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but we still have a couple weeks before it starts to hit store shelves. That doesn't mean we can't get some interesting information about the Galaxy Note line. Apparently, Samsung has sold over 38 million Note phablets so far.

The number comes directly from Samsung's own JK Shin, who was speaking at a press meeting during IFA. Shin said that the original Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note II combined sold over 38 million units worldwide so far. Shin also went on to say that he believes the Galaxy Note 3 will outsell the Note II, and he is predicting upwards of 10 million units will be sold of Samsung's newest phablet. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is planned to go on sale in 149 countries around the world on September 25th, but it won't make it to the U.S. or Japan until in October. T-Mobile has said the device will be available on October 2nd, AT&T has announced the date as October 1st, and Verizon has put the launch at October 10th.

iPhone has sold more and will continue to sell more with tomorrow's announcement of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Go Apple!

Apple sold more iPhones than Samsung is because of the name "iPhone". iPhone...iPhone, a great device to show off and make people jealous. You won't even know you've already upgraded to a new iPhone because it's still a same old iPhone. And you won't even know someone pickpocket your iPhone because it's an iPhone. And you won't even know your iPhone is a ripoff by a chinese manufacturer called Goophone.

iPhone...iPhone, I'd rather use the public telephone.

I'm not a fanboy nor a hater. There's nothing wrong with being a fanboy or a hater, as long as you're not a butthurt sheep then it's okay.

*sheep is not an offensive word, sheep is an animal that lives in a farm.

Calm down Dark, I'm still me. I posted that comment is to tell those butthurt Apple fanboys to stop thinking Apple is the best. There's no best smartphones or companies, there's only better.

If I\'m not mistaken both me and xperiadroid hates apple. I just hope that we are not offending smart fanboys like you. For me I personally hate the blind apple fanboys and followers. Some people buy an apple iphone because it is a status symbol. In most countries around the world apple iphones are the most expensive phones compared to any other android, windows or bb phones. They just like to showoff and rub into people\'s faces that they\'re rich. Let\'s face it, people just follow the trend and the iphone is an example of that.

Totally agree with you. But just for being clear, I don't hate Apple, I only hate those blind Apple fanboys.

Well I'm certainly not that, I'm simply a techie, that uses an iPhone as my primary driver. My note 2 gets a lotta miles "too" though. The "too" is a little jab at gadget80 lol ;)

I didn't say you're one of them. Btw, good luck on your upgrade to the iPhone 5S. :)

I'm not upgrading. I'm selling my note 2, and ip5 going on eBay, finding an old moto brick phone from 1991, and going analog.

Ok, and you have a point there. I can't argue that, it kinda seems like Troll has finally gotten to xD though lol. I liked his posts more, when he critiqued apple, lately he's been kinda trolling. XD is still cool, but has Troll possessed him lol?

Haha Note line is a different market segment and 38mil for them is a very good number. iPhone has already been slapped by the S line of Galaxy.

Except, it hasn\'t. Samsung didn\'t make more money and the Galaxy S, of any stripe, has never outsold a competing iPhone, at least, not outside your fantasy world.

You're rite napalm, but you'll be called a fanboy for stating the obvious. The galaxy line is really taking off, since Sammy changed its marketing approach, and now appeals to a lot of mainstream consumers.

Oh, I know, and I have owned an international version, as well as a domestic, of each Galaxy S and Note since the first, with the exception of the S4 (AT&T only). Hell, my next phone, besides some 5s and 5c models to sell, will be a Dev or Play Edition Moto X. I buy and try as many phones ss I can. I\'m like a kid in a candy shop.

Me too, tech is like crack to me. Thank god for the buyers remorse period, I take full advantage of it. Craigslist is actually why I have had so many phones though. I buy and sell on there all the time.

I was an XDA Marketplace regular, and then moved to celltraderonline when the MP closed. Some Ebay and Craigslist for the rest.

Brain dead! I know it's 2 years that the notes have been out. Use what little brain cells you have and realize that's 15 million phones per Note. World Wide. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!

I'm keeping my S4 until the S5 drops next year. The note 3 seems cool but its just waaaay to big for me. It's sad enough already that one of my hands is ALWAYS tied up by using my phone. So ill be damn if I buy a phone that will require the use of both of my hands...
