Samsung Ships 1 Million Galaxy Note Units, Announces U.S. Availability In 2012

It seems demand for Samsung’s “not quite a phone, not quite a tablet” is high, as Samsung was proud to announce its milestone of 1 million Galaxy Note units shipped globally. The Galaxy Note is Samsung’s answer to those who’d rather not carry multiple devices, but would like the myriad of features that multiple devices offer. The Galaxy Note fits that bill perfectly and features identity crisis specs such as:

  • – 5.3” WXGA HD Super AMOLED screen
  • – 1.4GHz Dual Core Processor
  • – 8 MP rear camera with LED Flash
  • – 2 MP front facing camera
  • – 1080p Full HD video recording & playback
  • – 16GB Internal memory / microSD (up to 32GB)
  • – Full touch multi input with S Pen (Advanced smart pen) compatibility
  • – Android 2.3(Gingerbread)

Many people feel the Note’s screen size is too large to carry around as your everyday device, but I kind of like the large display. I think the Galaxy Note will have its niche of users who enjoy having a middle ground between smartphone and tablet, and I look forward to its arrival here in the states. Samsung hasn’t announced any other information other than the fact that it will be hitting the states sometime in 2012. Your guess is as good as mine, but I’m hoping it will be sooner than later, as delays in this market are extremely costly in my opinion.
