Samsung announced that they have shipped over five million Galaxy Note phones. In the beginning of March it was reported that Samsung sold two million units. So either that earlier report wasn't correct, or else the US launch was very successful. Samsung hopes to sell 10 million galaxy notes in 2012, and they also announced today that Japan's NTT DoCoMo will soon offer the LTE version.
Samsung's Galaxy Note is a large Android v2.3 phone (or mini-tablet?) with a 5.3" Super AMOLED display with an HD resolution: 1280x800. Other specs include a dual-core 1.4Ghz processor, 8mp camera, touch display with pen input (it has a stylus). The phone is 9.65mm thick and weights 178 grams.
