Samsung Galaxy Note Reaches 2 Million Sales In South Korea
The Samsung Galaxy Note has sold more than two million units in Samsung’s home base of South Korea, a popular sales destination for the company’s various Google Android based cell phones.
The stylus-enabled smartphone which has been given the nickname “phablet” has become the fasted selling device to reach the two million mark when compared to all other Korean LTE-based phones to date.
The phones successes are largely attributed to its unique features including a “smart pen” which provides more functionality that a traditional stylus while still allowing for smartphone type functionality. The Samsung Galaxy Note also features a larger 5.3 inch display that places the phone between a phone and a tablet.
Critics began to question the smartphones design before it was even released and this announcement should go a long way in validating the company’s decision to create an “in-between” device.
After its released the team at Electronista reviewed the device and noted:
“Its huge screen was ideal for reading, web surfing, and some apps. We were also impressed with its photo and movie quality, as well as its strong camera app and photo editing capabilities. The overall size of the device could be a drawback for some users, though, and, at release, the stylus was more of a novelty than a difference maker.”
While Samsung announced in March that it had sold two million units and shipped five million, this new milestone counts towards sales only achieved in South Korea.
