Consumers seem to like the Galaxy Note, says Samsung Electronics. In late December Samsung said that it shipped over 1 million Samsung Galaxy Note and now the number seems to have doubled two months later.
The electronics-giants told Forbes that it has already sold 2 million Notes since last October’s launch, and plans to sell another 10 million by the end of 2012.
The latest of the Note category devices, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was on display at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. It features a dual-core CPU, clocked at 1.4GHz, HSPA+ connectivity, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is however yet unknown when the new Galaxy Note 10.1 will hit the shelves in Malaysia.
Samsung has sold over 300 million handsets for the first time in 2011 compared to 280 million in 2010. It is confident it will become the world’s largest cellphone maker in 2012, overtaking Nokia.
