60 seconds with Samsung's Galaxy Note 8
It appears that the Note 7 fiasco has been wiped from the minds of Note fans.
Following the news that Samsung received nearly 400,000 orders for the Note 8 in South Korea, Samsung Mobile US posted that more people have purchased the Note 8 than any previous Samsung Note device during the same time period.
I've had an evaluation Samsung Galaxy Note 8 for more than a week and my own T-Mobile Note 8 is currently out for delivery today. This T-Mobile delivery comes a week before originally promised, and I have seen many other US carrier pre-orders arriving at homes across the US.
Samsung did not provide any figures on Note 8 sales, so maybe it only sold one more than the last Note. The Note base is more limited than the broader mass audience who purchase the iPhone or Galaxy S series, but it's also usually the enterprise crowd or those looking to do everything with their smartphone. I have personally seen a surprising number of friends use a Note that I would never have thought of as Note users and am already getting several inquiries about the Note 8.
