Samsung has outpaced even the mighty Apple after introducing the Galaxy Note II phone/tablet also called a “phablet”, which kind of sounds like something you wouldn’t want your sister to walk in and find you doing. Putting aside the strange name and that weird fixation with your sister, Samsung’s sales momentum is outpacing even the iPhone 5.
Apple rolled out just one new phone last year while Samsung blitzed the market with 37 variants, many with specific tweaks for both particular regions and market segments. The financial markets were shocked when Samsung posted an 89 percent increase in profits over last year.
While Apple fans may be a little chagrined at the pace of new product introduction, the success of the Galaxy Note II is definitely good news for the Android market. Competition is a wonderful thing and the response that Samsung’s success will certainly prompt from Apple can be nothing but good news for consumers.
