Samsung sells 5 million Galaxy Note 2s

Shifts Galaxy Note II to sellers rather than end-users

Samsung has announced that it has sold a total of five million units of its Galaxy Note 2 smartphone and tablet hybrid.

The large screen Galaxy Note II Android smartphone meets tablet has sold over five million units since its launch at the beginning of October. However, going by Samsung's usual way of releasing figures this isn't actually how many have been sold to end users, just to retailers. Group test: What's the best smartphone?

The Galaxy Note II, with its 5.5in display, is expected to sell 20 million units, according to The Next Web. This total would be double that of the original Galaxy Note.

Samsung's flagship Galaxy S3 smartphone has sold 30 million units since it launched earlier this year. However, sights are already set on what the Galaxy S4 will bring with it. The latest rumours include a 5in full HD screen and a 13Mp camera.

For comparison Apple sold, to actual end-user customers, a total of five million iPhone 5 units over its first weekend on sale.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
