Samsung’s Galaxy Note continues to defy the critics, shifting five million units worldwide in five months, the South Korean giant has revealed.
Billed as a “new type of smartphone”, the positively massive bit of kit has been something of a success story for the company despite an initial vote of no confidence from sceptics who thought the device was too niche to flourish.
The feat is made more impressive by the demise of the Dell Streak, which boasted similarly hefty dimensions, but failed to generate the kind of mass-market buzz the Note has achieved.
This has been helped largely by the fact the Note comes with stylus support - courtesy of the “S Pen” - making it appealing to creative and business types alike.
Sammy’s announcement comes just a week after it announced it would be releasing a new “Premium Suite” of apps for the Note in the second quarter, with an Android Ice Cream Sandwich update to follow.
