Last month it was reported that Samsung had managed to sell over 5 million units of the Galaxy Note 2 globally, and it seems that almost a fifth of those sales came from their home of South Korea. According to a report by MK News, they claim that Samsung has managed to sell 1 million Galaxy Note 2 units in South Korea, a milestone which they have managed to reach in about 90 days since its launch in September. As SammyHub has noted, if Samsung were to keep up this momentum, there is a good chance that Samsung could hit the 10 million milestone next month.
This is pretty interesting because when Samsung first announced the Galaxy Note, many people, myself included, thought the large screen would be a novelty. After all who would want to carry around a device that large? However its large screen real estate provided users with a decent amount of room to browse websites, play games and read, all while being able to fit into their pocket unlike tablets which needed to be carried in a separate bag. Now Samsung finds themselves faced with a ton of competition from LG, HTC, ZTE, Huawei and possibly even Sony, all of whom are trying to get in on the phablet game themselves.
