It’s only been a month and Samsung announced today that their Galaxy Note 2 has sold a little bit 3 million units. Not bad for a smartphone going against phones like the iPhone 5. Samsung’s hybrid smartphone is becoming a hit with consumers, and now selling faster then the og model. Congrats to Samsung.
The South Korean firm, which was the world’s largest maker of smartphones in the July-September quarter, said it took 37 days for the oversize smartphone to reach the sales figure.
The Note II was released first in South Korea in September and in the U.S. and other countries in the following month.
Samsung’s Note category took off in the market, overcoming skepticism about its big size making it look awkward when held close to the face.
The Note was one of the few 5-inch smartphone in the market when the first model was unveiled last year, making some people believe it would become a “tweener” that is neither a tablet nor a smartphone.
