Samsung’s original Galaxy Note is an odd device. Many consumers think it’s too big to actually use as an everyday smartphone, and with good reason. Then again, 10 million other people think differently, and the Galaxy Note had no problems moving off the shelves. On the heels of that success, Samsung predicted that the Note’s successor would sell three times faster than the original Note, and so far, they’re right on track because they already sold 3 million units.
Now, the Note II hasn’t flooded the mainstream market like the Galaxy S III has done – which sold 20 million devices just 100 days after it was available – but between Samsung’s great advertising and the fact that all the US carriers are getting the Note II, it’s easy to see how it’s going to outsell its predecessor. It’s well on its way to hit that projected 20 million mark that Samsung was aiming for, and I’d say that’s a pretty good number for a niche device, wouldn’t you?
