Samsung has sold 630,000 Note Edge units so far

Dt, the Note Edge has sold-in some 630,000 units. That's a very small portion of total Note sales, of course – Samsung sold as many as 4.5 million units of the Note 4 in the first month of availability, for example. Still, it appears that the Edge is well on its way to hitting the million units sold milestone.As it turns out, however, response to Samsung's edgy phablet has been better than we expected. According to South Korean publication
This should be some welcome news for Samsung, considering its recently dwindling sales. The Edge is not enough to keep a behemoth such as Samsung afloat, of course, but the company has likely won itself future support from major carriers around the globe who are seeing decent interest in an otherwise wacky device. In case you didn't know, focusing on innovative and hard-to-copy tech lies at the center of Samsung's new strategy, so don't be surprised if all those rumors of a Galaxy S6 Edge pan out – this may just be a part of Samsung's way out of the mire.
Thanks for the tip!

Samsung sells everything, from TV's, fridges, washing machines and all things electronic... I don't know why people think they will go down hard like Nokia, when Nokia was just known for their mobile phone division while Samsung is known for everything. Samsung just has too many backups to keep the company alive.

SE accounts for a majority of Samsung revenue. They need it to succeed or everything else comes crashing down.

630,000 disagree. It´s a niche device, like the SGS 6 or Edge will be. It´s not mainstream like the Note 4 or the SGS 6. And considering that it is only becoming available in many carriers around the world in the last month, this a reallyyyyy good number.

Are you that stupid? Or just plain ole dumb? The edge is a niche product that was release in limited quantities. This is more than shocking that they've sold so much out of the one million that was made. That's damn impressive if you ask me or anyone else. Stop with your BS already.

I.e in the uk you can only buy it from Samsung website for £700 or at carphonewh... For £730 or get it only on 1 contract network on the most costly plan (over £50) you can think off and only at again carphonewh, this is a very good number when you come to cost it is to buy, if the iPhone only sold like this even that phone will sell limited numbers. I ordered my edge from Samsungs website for £700, and now when I show it off all iPhone users go wow

I'm 1 of 630,000 and I do agree that it's really not that needed. HOWEVER, I wanted the option because, well, it's different, there's a "WOW" factor and to a lesser extent, it can be usefully for navigating through my apps. I wish there were more apps developed for the Edge portion and it irks me that it doesn't allow me to view messages from non-samsung messaging platforms. Sure it will alert me that I received a message from say...Hangouts (default sms/mms msg app) or Whatsapp but I still have to pull down the notification drawer to see a preview and open the app to fully read the message. I wish it would just scroll the message on the Edge portion as well as allow me to cycle through various messages from the different msg apps. Is it worth it? If you're budget conscious, no. If you can afford the additional ~$120, why not.
