Samsung's Galaxy Note hits 5 million sales

Samsung took a big gamble when it released its Galaxy Note, the hefty smartphone/tablet crossover that used a stylus as an input device, with many critics seeing the stylus as a dated throwback and the in-between size as awkward for holding and slipping into pockets.

However, the company has been marketing the device hard – even promoting it with a Superbowl commercial that was the culmination of a campaign mocking Apple that dated back several months – and it seems it’s paying off.

Samsung has announced on its Korean website that 5 million Galaxy Note devices have been sold around the world since its launch in September last year, proving that the pundits don’t always get it right. 

The Galaxy Note launched in New Zealand in January, and judging by its performance overseas it seems we can expect even more videos of cute animals playing with it in the future.
