Samsung released the new Galaxy Note on AT&T less than two weeks ago here in the United States. However, they started shipping internationally in the fall of 2011. In December, two months before the U.S. release, Samsung announced that they had cleared the one million mark.
Today Samsung told Forbes magazine that they have sold 2 million of their new 5.3″ phoneblet (phablet sounds so dumb).
While others have been critical of the pricing of the Galaxy Note we felt that the $299 price on a new two year contract was better than we had originally hoped for. Factoring in an extra inch of real estate and the S-Pen you’re getting a lot more device than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus that costs the same price.
Samsung has said they hope to sell 10 million more Galaxy Notes by the end of the year, in their quest to double their smartphone sales.
