Samsung had revolutionized the concept of Tablet and Smartphone when it introduced its 5.3-inch Galaxy Note (hybridization of Tablet and Smartphone) last year. The company contemplated about an intermediate option to provide awesome users’ experiences in a specific device. However, the company has currently grown numbers of detractors who have always been lashing out the 5.3-inch device after it was being launched. The device recorded 1 million sales in just two months after its launch in the last year. Today, the Korean Vendor has announced that the device has surpassed 5 million shipments worldwide in just five months. It means that the company has averagely shipped 1 million devices in every month.
Samsung officially reported that China, Spain and France have contributed the largest share of purchases across the world. The shipment reached to the maximal level in December last year when the demand of the device had extensively reached to ‘record height’ especially in Europe and Asia including France, Germany, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The demand of the device is maximum in the company’s homeland, alone Korea accounting for 67% of its total worldwide shipments.
Recently, AT&T has released a list of the devices which is going to be updated in coming months, and Samsung Galaxy Note has also been scheduled to receive Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). However, the company has already released Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Galaxy S II in the UK only on O2 carrier networks.
Undoubtedly, Samsung has recorded its triumph worldwide with its Android powered devices. Thanks to Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Nexus, which were among the top Smartphone last year. The company sold 35 million Smartphones in just Q4 last year. Anyway, the company does not need to explain whether its decision to launch Hybrid (Tablet-cum-Smartphone) device was rationale or not? I think, the total shipment of Galaxy Note is itself a stern replies for detractors and it’s expected that ICS update will make the device more competitive in future.
