Galaxy Note 2 Sales Hit 3 Million Ahead of AT&T & Verizon Release

Today, Samsung announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has sold three million units in just over 30 days since the phablet launched. And those sales figures should only increase once the device hits the two biggest carriers in the United States, AT&T and Verizon, which its poised to do in the weeks ahead.

The company revealed the sales numbers today a little over a month after the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 made its debut. That three million mark is a pretty good milestone for the unique smartphone whose design was originally met with skepticism back in 2011 but went on to sell over 10 million units in the months after its launch.

The Galaxy Note 2, at this point, appears poised to surpass the original Galaxy Note in sales with the holiday shopping season about to hit full throttle and with launches on AT&T and Verizon, the United States’ two largest carriers, in the mix for November.

The Galaxy Note 2 has hit three million in sales.

Those two launches should help to propel Galaxy Note 2 sales even further. Samsung’s JK Shin, the company’s head of mobile, has said that the company hopes to hit 20 million in Galaxy Note 2 sales.

Right now, the device is only available on two of the four largest U.S. carriers including Sprint and T-Mobile. It’s also available on U.S. Cellular, a regional carrier. However, Sprint and U.S. Cellular’s 4G LTE networks are tiny and T-Mobile’s Galaxy Note 2 won’t get 4G LTE support until 2013 making the trio the least attractive of the bunch for many.

AT&T and Verizon boast the two largest 4G LTE networks and are the two largest carriers in the United States and both look set to launch the Galaxy Note 2 during the month of November.

AT&T’s Galaxy Note 2 has been up for pre-order since October 25th with a release date scheduled for November 9th. Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2 has been up for pre-order since then as well though its release date remains unclear.

The carrier’s website lists the device as shipping out by November 27th but its release date is actually pegged for November 29th. Verizon still hasn’t made an official announcement so it’s still very much up in the air.

What’s not up in the air though is the Galaxy Note 2′s popularity which should only rise as we get closer to the end of the year.

    That’s a very good number for only being on sale for a short time. I’ve ordered my Galaxy Note II, and it should be at my house later today. I chose to stick with T-Mobile since they are the only carrier to offer an unlimited data plan with useable internet speeds. In most cases, the 4G on my current phone than the LTE phone that one of my DISH coworkers has. We use the DISH Remote Access app on our phones to stream live and recorded shows through the Sling Adapter that we have on our home receivers. It hardly seems worth paying extra for LTE, especially with how much his phone buffers. It will be nice being able to stream as much as I want without hitting a cap, which doesn’t make sense having on a smartphone.
