The Samsung Galaxy Note is an interesting device based on its unconventional configurations, but it seems Samsung has found a way to make the device popular in the European and Asian markets. According to information posted on Samsung’s Flickr account (I know, what a weird way to announce a milestone), Samsung has shipped the Galaxy Note over a million times.
The Galaxy Note boasts a 5.3 inch touch screen display, Android 2.3, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear facing camera with 1080p capture, 2MP front facing camera, and 4G LTE connectivity. Clearly, it is a high-end Android smartphone, but it is uniquely defined by its large 5.3 inch screen, which puts it somewhere in between a smartphone and a tablet. Many of us will remember the Dell Streak 5, which launched as a smartphone/tablet hybrid, but it didn’t sell very well since there was confusion on what kind of a device it is.
Samsung has done a good marketing job by portraying the Galaxy Note as a smartphone that can take the place of a tablet since its screen is much larger than the average smartphone. When the Samsung Galaxy Note reaches American shores, I’m sure its popularity and the amount shipped will jump up significantly.
