Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Soars to 5 Million Unit Sales in Just One Month

When so-called "phablets" first emerged -- those devices that are bigger than your typical smartphone but smaller than a tablet -- there was a question mark surrounding whether or not consumers would snatch these things up. Well, Samsung keeps proving that there's a market for smartphones with ginormous touchscreen displays, further proof of which comes from sales of the company's Galaxy Note 3 device.

Samsung said it has sold more than 5 million Galaxy Note 3 devices since its launch a month ago. That's the quickest a Galaxy Note device has ever reached that many sales.

It took Samsung around two months to move 5 million Galaxy Note 2 handsets, while the original Galaxy Note needed five months to reach the same milestone. Both of those devices have gone on to put up respectable sales figures.

The Galaxy Note 3 features a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5 Octa processor (depending on geographic location), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 2MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and a 3200mAh battery.

I think the missive screen are taking off because you dont have to carry your tablet and phone everywhere. The screen is almost big enough to do everything general people would use a tablet for.

That might very well be true. They're not that much smaller than a 7-inch tablet.

Saw someone with one of these at the office yesterday - a little big for me, but I wouldn't mind having one either. Makes even more sense to have Galaxy Gear if you have something that big, though I'm not a fan of it myself.

I want one of these really bad, but I'm not due for an upgrade until November of next year, which is a real letdown. It's a little off topic here, but I'm on Verizon and if I want to upgrade, then I have to pay full price on the phone. What gives Verizon first you take my unlimited plan and then this?? Think of the revenue you'll be getting from me if they did do this practice. Btw, the Edge upgrade option is a swendling option only to get more money off of you. Just my 2 cents..
