Samsung sells 3 million Galaxy Note II Samsung has announced this week that it has sold 3 million Galaxy Note 2 in just 30 days.
For comparison, the original oversized phone sold 1 million units in its first month of availability and hit 3 million after 90 days.

Furthermore, the company said it reached 30 million Galaxy S III smartphone sales, an impressive record.

More impressively for Samsung is the fact that the Galaxy Note II only just reached the American market, meaning all three million sales were from overseas.

The note has a massive 5.5-inch screen, a new 16:9 aspect ratio with 1280x720, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a quad-core 1.6GHz processor and 2GB RAM. The device has an 8MP LED rear camera and a 1.9MP front-side camera, a microSD slot, MHL, NFC, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and Glonass, Wi-Fi Direct, 21 Mbps HSPA+ or 4G LTE support. The real kicker is a massive 3100 mAh battery.

Samsung has made the phone available to all major carriers in the U.S.; AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and U.S. Cellular.

This would be one of my candidates right now if I was to upgrade. But their tablet wouldn't be then I'd be looking at the Tranformer or Iconia A700.
