Samsung Telecommunications America, LLC (Samsung Mobile) – the No.1 mobile phone provider in the United States and a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the No. 1 smartphone provider worldwide1 – celebrated the U.S. launch of the Galaxy Note® II in New York City at the iconic Skylight at Moynihan Station with its fans, who received a first-look and chance to experience the Galaxy Note II and the recently unveiled Galaxy Camera™.
With the original Samsung Galaxy Note launch last year, Samsung defined a new category – the ultimate combination of a smartphone and tablet. This product, unlike any other on the market, transformed the way consumers interact and create on their mobile device. The Galaxy Note II with the revolutionary S Pen™ is the ultimate device for on-the-go creativity and productivity, helping people work, multi-task, collaborate and now share.
In keeping with category defining moves, Samsung’s Galaxy Camera uniquely blends high performance photography with the familiar and intuitive Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean, resulting in a powerful, socially connected photography experience. As announced previously, the Galaxy Camera will be available from AT&T in time for the holidays.
“With the launch of the Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Camera, Samsung is delivering on its commitment to give consumers new and innovative smartphone experiences,” said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. “With more than 10 million of the original Galaxy Notes sold globally within 9 months, consumers have demonstrated that they want the best of a smartphone and a tablet in one device. With all major carriers selling the Galaxy Note II, we expect it to exceed the success of the original Galaxy Note.”
More than 1,000 Samsung fans were selected from among its 17.5 million plus Samsung Mobile USA Facebook fans and 3 million Samsung Mobile US Twitter followers to participate in the exclusive celebration. The evening included an experiential event and an exclusive performance by artist, Kanye West.
