Samsung shipped more than 1 million Galaxy Note tablet-phone
Samsung’s Galaxy Note has not still came in the U.S., but it is seeing robust preliminary sales in other markets all over the world. Even though Samsung cannot seem to make a decision whether the “smart device” is a tablet, a phone or something in between, the company did ensure in a media release yesterday that the Note has reached the 1 million milestone for units shipped internationally.
Globally, Galaxy Note sales are increasing in Europe and Asia. Samsung specially mentioned France, Germany, Taiwan and Hong Kong as markets where the Note is flipping out to be fairly popular.
The company mentioned in a launch: “The quick global sales of Galaxy Note are notable because it is creating a new market for something between smartphone and tablet PC,”
And obviously, Samsung is expecting itself for even bigger numbers when the device reaches the gadget stores of the United States. Sad to say, we do not yet have a U.S. release date more specific than “sometime in 2012.” If you’re confused as to what the Note is, see the

An unnamed Samsung representative said in his statement released yesterday: “One million global shipping of Galaxy Note means it has well positioned itself as a market creator, Samsung will continuously strengthen its leadership in the global smartphone market as well as create new markets with innovative devices.”
Samsung distributed more than 300 million smart phones in 2011 and expects that number to rise 15 percent in 2012.
