Samsung Confirms Lots of People Actually Want a Phablet Like the Galaxy Note

By Sam Gibbs on at

Last week we heard that people really were buying Samsung’s Galaxy Note phablet, at least down under. Now Samsung’s come out and confirmed it – it’s shipped over five million of the things and in just five months. It’s not even sporting Ice Cream Sandwich yet.

Five million in five months is almost iPhone money; Samsung must be jumping up and down with giddy abandon having apparently found a niche in the market hitherto untapped. I’m still not convinced I’d get on with one personally, but obviously quite a few love them. Shout out if you’re a Note-lover – I’d be interested to hear how many Brits actually bought them.
