galaxy note edge

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, with its unique display that curves on one side of the smartphone, may be harder to purchase than previously thought. This week, Samsung Electronics president D J Lee was quoted on ZDNet Korea as saying that the Galaxy Note Edge will be made as a "limited concept" product, rather than a mass produced device like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The Galaxy Note Edge was announced a few weeks ago at IFA 2014 and in our hands-on impressions feature of the device, we noted that it would be available in the US via all four major US carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon) sometime later this year. However, Lee said this week that the phone will be rolling out to just a select few markets around the world, beginning sometime in October in Samsung's home country of South Korea.

How limited will the availability of the Galaxy Note Edge really be worldwide? UK-based smartphone retailer Clove posted word earlier this month that the smartphone will "not be available in the majority of European countries' for its launch. What do you think of this decision by Samsung to keep supplies of the Galaxy Note Edge down to a smaller amount?
