Samsung Galaxy Note II hits 5 million sold

Samsung Galaxy Note II hits 5 million sold Samsung's new "phablet" has reached a significant milestone.
The Galaxy Note II has passed the 5 million units sold mark, selling 2 million in 3 weeks after announcing 3 million sold.

Of course, the figure pales in comparison to sales of the Galaxy S III, which have topped 30 million, but the Note II features a massive 5.5-inch screen that critics were afraid would scare away consumers.

Despite launch earlier this year, the phablet only recently made it to most of the major American carriers late last month, leading to the spike in sales.

Hmm, still debating on whether or not to get a Galaxy S III or this sucker. Don't have large hands, but I don't mind holding the phone with 2 hands. Hell, I still do with my Razr Maxx when watching YouTube or Netflix!

I don't have a problem with large screens when they are inherently meant to be used with two hands, ie tablet, but does anyone actually consider what they look like with 5.5" of phone against their ear? You've got to be kidding.




Furthermore, who is wearing jeans or whatever with pockets that big?
