It looks like Samsung is sitting on another goldmine. The Korean tech giant says that it has shipped 3 million units of the Galaxy Note 2.
Like the original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note 2 is proving to be a popular device. Samsung, however, confirmed with CNET UK that this figure represents the amount of devices shipped to retailers and not the amount of devices that have been sold.
The success of the Galaxy Note 2 shows that there are people who are still interested in devices sporting a stylus. With 3 million units of the Galaxy Note 2 shipped, this also means that Samsung’s new ‘phablet’ has now matched the sales of the Google Nexus 7. ASUS (creator of the Nexus 7) announced that Google sold 2.8 million of the 7-inch tablet.
Samsung’s Note 2 hit the 3 million mark in a little bit over a month. This, however, is nothing compared to the sales of the Galaxy S3. Samsung’s flagship has reached more than 200 million sales as of the 6th of September.
With these sales figures, there’s no doubt that the Korean tech giant is at the top of the Android food chain. The Google Nexus 4, however, threatens it dominance.
The Nexus 4 (a new Nexus smartphone made by LG) sports a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 768×1280 pixels, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a quad-core processor. It also runs the latest version of Android, Android version 4.2. The Nexus 4 is at par with the Samsung Galaxy S3, but will only set you back £239. This makes it more affordable compared to today’s popular flagships.

Have you been waiting to get your hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? If this is the case, we have good news for you. The 5.5-inch successor of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note has landed in UK shops.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 sports a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED 720p display, a whopping 1.6GHz quad-core processor, and a bigger 3,100mAh battery. Like the original Note, the Note 2 sports a Stylus.
The Galaxy Note 2 is available in 16GB and 32GB variants. If you’re looking for more storage, the Note 2 comes with a microSD card slot. For now, you don’t have to wait for the latest version of Android. The device runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
If you’re looking to get your hands on the Galaxy Note 2, be prepared to cough up more than £500. Amazon is selling the device for a whopping £530 for the 16GB version. However, you won’t be getting your hands on the Note 2 until the 16th of October.
If you’re not willing to wait this long, you can always sign up for a contract or upgrade to the Note 2. Doing this, however, will require you to sign up for a 2-year contract on at least a £30 monthly plan. This will not require you to pay anything upfront. Three, on the other hand, is offering the Note 2 for £500 on pay as you go (including a top-up). We’re expecting other networks to follow suit.
It’ll be wise, however, to wait until other networks reveal their Note 2 monthly plans or other deals to surface. You might jump the gun when something better comes up.
