Samsung reveals that about one million Galaxy Note have been shipped globally since its release

The latest Samsung Galaxy Note can be called as a hybrid and mostly stays between a Tablet and a Smartphone. It actually looks like a phone and even functions as one but the processor it has is a very powerful one.

The Galaxy Note has a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, which is most common among tablets. However, it has a screen size of only 5.3inches along with built in stylus which traditionally seems like a feature of a smartphone.

Earlier there was question regarding its sales, whether the Note will be able to make a place in the market or not? But now it seems to have made a good number of users in the market since its release in October. According to Samsung, a million of the Galaxy Notes have already been shipped to the markets in Asia and the Eurozone.

According to a statement posted on Samsung’s Flickr account on 29th of December they have shipped more than a million units of Galaxy Note globally. Their sales are rising globally mainly in countries like France, Germany, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

As it can be considered as a hybrid between the two devices it might be creating a new market causing for its rapid Global sales. It is also expected to accelerate further in the year 2012, as soon it will also get released in the US.

But an interesting fact about this issue is the figure only depicts the number of devices shipped not the number of units sold. The shipped data does not equate the number of units sold which is yet to be revealed by Samsung. So after its release in the US, and the figures indicating the number of units sold we will be able to say if it has created a new market or not.
