Five is an important number for Samsung's Galaxy Note
. It has a 5.3-inch screen and now, just five months since it debuted Samsung has announced it's shipped five million units (the one million
mark was crossed right around the end of December). That's certainly long enough for you to decide if you're in love with its super-sized frame or the accompanying S-Pen stylus, but unfortunately it has not been quite enough time for the highly-anticipated Ice Cream Sandwich software update to be released. While the world waits for the Premium Suite of apps and Android 4.0
, let's think back to all the good times we had, including its initial unveiling
, our original review
and finally its arrival in the US on AT&T
. So, are you convinced yet that there's a place in the world for a device like this, or five million phablets later are you still thinking this is just a fad?Update
: If you prefer to use your stylus for kanji or kana, Engadget Japan
has NTT Docomo's announcement that it will release the Galaxy Note with LTE, branded the SC-05D, on its network April 6th.
