Samsung Sees Galaxy Note II Sales Soar

Samsung underscored its dominance in the global smartphone market this week, saying it sold a whopping 5 million units of its Galaxy Note II device in just two months.

Galaxy Note II sales are outpacing those of its predecessor, the Galaxy Note, by a long shot, Samsung said; it took the first-generation model nearly five months to reach 5 million in sales.

Like the original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II sports a unique half-tablet, half-smartphone design, with a 5.5-inch screen, making it larger than Samsung's flagship Galaxy S III smartphone, but smaller than its Galaxy Tab lineup of tablets. All three devices run Google's Android OS.
