Samsung Galaxy Note surpasses 1 million global shipments, coming to the US in 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Note doesn’t just have a big display. Now it has sales numbers to match it. According to a press release sent out by Samsung earlier this morning, the company is confirming that the device has surpassed 1 million global shipments. That’s an impressive number, especially considering the competition that’s out there. But, while that’s good news for Samsung, it gets better for the general consumer here in the States.

As the title suggests, Samsung is indeed poised to release the huge phone into the States in 2012. However, while a launch date and details would be fantastic, the manufacturer didn’t provide any. So, while we were guessing we might see the device land State-side sometime next year, at least we now have a confirmation. Go ahead and check out the full press release below.

Samsung Electronics Ships over 1 Million Units of Galaxy Note Globally
Samsung’s flagship smart device Galaxy Note has reached 1 million global shipping.
Samsung Electronics said on the 29th that it has shipped more than 1 million units of Galaxy Note globally. The worldwide sales of Galaxy Note are also on the rise in Europe and Asia including France, Germany, Hongkong and Taiwan. The rapid global sales of Galaxy Note are notable since it is creating a new market for something between smartphone and tablet pc. The speed of the global sales is expected to accelerate further next year when it will be available in the US.
Recently, Financial Times reviewed highly of Galaxy Note, commenting it as“a happy medium for consumers who want to carry just one device, rather than both a smartphone and a tablet and whatever other portable gadget they pick up on their way out”.
A Samsung official also said “1 million global shipping of Galaxy Note means it has well positioned itself as a market creator,” also adding “Samsung will continuously strengthen its leadership in the global smartphone market as well as create new markets with innovative devices.”
