Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) has sold over 40 million Galaxy Note devices over the past two years. Of the 40 million Galaxy Notes sold, around 30 million was the Note II.
Samsung sold around 2 million Note devices in two weeks alone. Samsung critics believed that the 5.5-inch smartphone/tablet hybrid would not do well on the market. Nokia and HTC launched larger smartphones after Samsung did.
The Note II sold around 5 million units in about two months after launching in September 2012. Samsung launched the Note III (pictured above) last week.
