Samsung’s polarising Galaxy Note phone has shipped more than 5 million units since its launch five months ago, according to the company’s Korean site. The Galaxy Note is a monster 5.3-inch phone-tablet hybrid that has become Samsung’s flagship device for the first part of this year. It also comes with a stylus for jotting down notes and doodles on the massive screen.
Samsung also plans to launch a 10-inch tablet version of the Galaxy Note later this year.
For a bit of context, Apple sold 4 million iPhone 4Ss during its first weekend. So that 5 million number for the Galaxy Note may not sound too impressive in comparison, but it’s pretty good for a single Android device.
