Samsung Galaxy Note selling one million units per month

The Samsung Galaxy Note has now racked up sales of seven million units, an analyst claims, as it continues to defy early expectations of weak demand.

According to a tweet from industry sage and Mobile Review editor Eldar Murtazin, the Note has added two million to its tally over the last two months, taking its total to 7 million. This is despite an initial sense that the device had only niche appeal - a perception that saw some major UK carriers not even deign to range it.

Murtazin doesn’t mention a source for his gen. But given that he broke news that the Samsung Galaxy S3 had accrued staggering pre-order numbers of nine million a couple of weeks or so before Sammy officially confirmed as much, we're prepared to trust him.

The Note’s success has arisen despite the received wisdom that tablet-smartphone hybrids carry little traction with the general public – an impression that surely stemmed from earlier flop attempts to marry the two form factors. We’re mostly thinking of the unlamented but utterly lamentable Dell Streak here.

Dubbed a ‘phablet’ by people whose job it is to come up with that kind of portmanteau stuff, the Note’s standout specs take in a none-more-Samsung 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display, a dual-core processor and an eight megapixel snapper.

But perhaps its major USP is stylus support for note-taking and arty japes with the S-Pen, as well as a welter of specially created apps dubbed the Premium Suite.
