Samsung Ships Five Million Galaxy Notes, a.k.a “Phablets”

Samsung says it has shipped five million units of its Galaxy Note, a $300 smartphone-tablet hybrid with a 5.3-inch screen that hit the market last October. It’s unclear exactly how many units of the device have been sold; in February, Samsung said it had sold more than two million units worldwide.
