The Galaxy Note is big in more ways than one. SamMobile notes that Samsung this week has revealed that it has sold 10 million units of its Samsung Galaxy Note line of phablets in its home market of Korea alone. SamMobile says this isn’t as mind-blowing as it first sounds since Samsung’s sales figures reflect “the units shipped to carriers and other seller channels.” Even so this is still an impressive achievement, especially when you consider that South Korea has a population of 50 million people, meaning that for every five people in the country, Samsung has shipped one Galaxy Note. Any way you slice it, that’s pretty amazing.
