Samsung Galaxy Note shipments reach 1 million as it gears for 2012 US release

Samsung Galaxy Note shipments reach 1 million as it gears for 2012 US release
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.3-inch beast of a device standing right between a smartphone and a tablet. It’s definitely appealing to some and plain too huge to be a phone for others, but it hardly leaves people indifferent. Is it successful or not? Opinions will vary and only sales will tell the true story. 

Samsung officialized the first numbers about the Galaxy Note and it seems to be received pretty well with over 1 million shipped handsets so far. Now, this doesn’t actually mean that 1 million Notes were sold - this is only a number of handsets shipped to carriers and vendors, so the actualy sales number is smaller.

“1 million global shipping of Galaxy Note means it has well positioned itself as a market creator,” a Samsung official commented. “Samsung will continuously strengthen its leadership in the global smartphone market as well as create new markets with innovative devices.”

This warm welcome would be further tested in 2012 when Samsung has promised to make the Galaxy Note available stateside. Could this be your next phone?

I own this phone I like it a lot It is perfect and it has an incredible quality of antenna so I can connect at places where other phones don't get any signal The big screen is a pleasure for internet, photo and videos It is very thin and the battery is huge to support hours of browsing

If the note comes to the U.S will it come to verizon? Cause I heard its coming but only to AT&T for now. I guess it could come to verizon but with the release of the Nexus the Note won't come anytime soon in my opinion!

When I first got it I showed it to all my friends at a Christmas party and everyone's jaw dropped. At first, most laughed at how obsurdly large it was, but once they got it in their hands and played around with it, they were left captivated and thoroughly impressed. It's not for everyone-obviously-but it works very well for those who embrace it, regardless of its quirkiness. I love the GNote!
