It appears Samsung’s Galaxy Note II has found even more of a following than its predecessor, with the company announcing it has sold more than 3 million of the smartphone/tablet hybrids in just over a month.
First released in South Korea in September, the Note II has recently hit the U.S., with the super-sized smartphone already available at Sprint and T-Mobile. With AT&T and Verizon taking preorders for the device, it will soon be availed on the nation’s four largest carriers.
Sporting a 5.5-inch, 1280 x 720 resolution display, the phablet offers a larger screen than that of its 5.3-inch predecessor. While the original Note was met with criticism for its larger than average display, it soon found a niche with consumers looking for an impressive screen. Although with Sammy’s flagship phone, the Galaxy S III housing a large display, and models like the LG Intuition, the Note is no longer alone in the large device arena.
Despite this, the Note II seems to have garnered a strong following, perhaps because of its 1.6 GHz quad-core processor or its ever popular S Pen stylus. Either way, only time will tell if Samsung can hold on to its success as the holiday season approaches.
