Not so surprisingly, the Galaxy Note 2 has sold well. Samsung is reporting that in just over 30 days, the Note 2 has surpassed 3 million devices sold. It took just a handful of months for the original Note to hit 10 million devices sold, so the Note 2 is expectedly selling at a faster pace than that. There's a lot of demand for the huge phone, and it has only been announced on two of the four major carriers in the U.S.
Back in September, JK Shin -- head of Samsung Mobile -- said he expected to hit the 20 million sales mark for the Galaxy Note 2 (although no time table was given). A lofty goal for sure, but the holiday season will surely be kind to Samsung as we see the launch of the device on Verizon and AT&T here in the states.
