Samsung's pride and joy is selling like hot cakes.
Samsung last month launched the successor to its hugely successful Galaxy Note phablet. The 5.5-inch smartphone arrived in the United States in the last couple of weeks and it still isn't available across all carriers. However, the phone has been enjoying limited availability around the world for over a month now. In fact, Samsung today announced that in the first 37 days of availability, it had sold three million units.
Back in August, Samsung revealed that it had sold 10 million units of the original Galaxy Note. Despite straddling that awkward space between smartphone and tablet, the South Korean company managed to sell 10 million Notes in less than a year (the original was released October 2011.
The Galaxy Note II was announced last month at IDF and features a 5.5-inch display (up from 5.3-inches on the first Note), a quad-core Exynos CPU, 2GB of RAM, up to 64GB of storage, LTE, WiFi, an 8 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash, a 1.9 MP front-facing camera for video calls, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
