Samsung says it has shipped over 5 million Galaxy Note’s since October

Wanna talk numbers for just a second? Okay. Let’s talk numbers. In fact, let’s talk 5 million of them. Samsung has announced that they have already surpassed that staggering count in Galaxy Note shipments since the device’s launch last October. The device had already blown past 1 million shipped in December, just 2 months after the crossbreed phablet hit the streets.

Thus far, the Note has already been burning up sales in countries around the world. In fact, it’s said to have a 67 percent market share in  China — a pretty astounding number, considering China’s ginormous population. The Note is also holding its own in South Korean, French and Spanish markets and was released by AT&T in the United States in January.
