Some exciting news came from yesterday’s Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 launch event where the company briefly announced they’ve sold more than 10 million Galaxy Note smartphones worldwide. The original Note made its debut in late October 2011 in Europe before making its way to the U.S. in February. To be honest with you, when Samsung announced the Note, I didn’t think it would be the first phone, greater then 5 inches, to have the success it did. It certainly has taken the mobile world by surprise!
Just to give you an idea of the momentum, it was only four months ago that Samsung announced they had sold 5 million Notes. The surge of sales to 10 million units is no doubt a combination of its launch here in the States and continued promotion throughout the Olympic Games. Samsung is expected to launch a successor to the original device at their pre-IFA press conference on August 29th in Berlin, Germany. The new version is rumored to have an even larger screen, and a bump to a quad-core CPU. Personally, after using the Note for the weekend, I welcome a newer, larger, and faster version! What about you?
