Samsung Galaxy Note 2: five million sold in two months

Samsung Galaxy Note 2: five million sold in two monthsCast your filthy minds back to March, and you might recall Martin declaring that the first Samsung Galaxy Note had sold five million units in as many months.

Now we’re hearing that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has achieved the same feat - in around two months.

That’s the good word according to Samsung, with a press release (translated) declaring five million global sales.

It’s not entirely clear if those are actual sales as opposed to shipments (Samsung specifically repeats “sales”), but either way it’s an impressive feat for a niche device.

The first Samsung Galaxy Note broke cover at IFA 2011, surprising the mobile world with its gargantuan 5.3in display. No one, possibly not even Samsung, could’ve predicted how successful it’d go on to be.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2, unveiled one year later in Berlin, is crazier still, extending the display size to a whopping 5.5in.

Other Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specs include a quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, and an 8MP rear camera.

Pushing the boundary between huge phone and small tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Notes are largely to blame for the rise of the term “phablet”.

Based on Windows Phone 7 successes. If we take the number of Windows 7 handsets sold in total and divide it by the number of days left up into christmas. Then factor in the extra marketing Microsoft have done for windows 8. Allow for delays of the Ativ S and exclusivity of the Lumia series. Then add up the total the answer should be...

four windows 8 handsets will be sold before Christmas...

Knowing Windows Phone, probably about 74 units.
