So, all those critics who said that a phablet would never work must be shaking their heads in disbelief. Samsung’s original massive Galaxy Note was a hit — and it’s 5.5-inch predecessor has just continued to fill the spot between a smartphone and a seven inch tablet. So much so that Samsung says it has sold over three-million devices since the updated version went on sale in September.

According to the Associated Press, Samsung has confirmed that in the 37 days after it released the phablet to the public, it’s selling faster the original. Although it’s hardly outpacing the smaller Galaxy S III (which sold 10-million devices less than two months after its release), it still works out to an impressive average of 81 081 devices a day for the Note II, against the S III’s 190 000.

The Note II was announced on 29 August, launched in South Korea on 26 September and had hit major markets in Europe, Asia and the Middle East by October — and the roll out in other countries is still on-going.

Marketed as a combination between a smartphone, tablet and organiser, the hybrid has a giant super AMOLED display and is designed to be used with a stylus — the S Pen. It may be a niche device, but it’s yet another illustration of Samsung’s power as a manufacturer — the South Korean company shipped over 56-million smartphones in the third quarter, total 31% of the global market in the time frame.
