Samsung has sold 2 million units of its Galaxy Tab device worldwide. Since its October debut in Europe, the device has become available through some 200 mobile carriers in 94 countries. Europe saw about shipped 500,000 units, North America sold 350,000 tablets, while Asia pushed out 330,000 devices, according to Yonhap News. Samsung said consumer demand for its Galaxy Tab has outpaced supply in most countries.

Samsung launched its tablet in response to Apple's iPad. Apple, which is currently dominating the tablet space, sold 7.33 million iPads in the October-December period. Samsung is planning to launch more Android tablets this year. In fact, the Galaxy Tab 2 will be announced next month at Mobile World Congress, according to a leak obtained by Electronista. Meanwhile, Apple is readying the iPad 2.

Running on Android 2.2, the Galaxy Tab features a TFT-LCD capacitive touch screen with a 1024x600 resolution, a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application processor, 512MB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G, and dual cameras for capturing still images, videos, or making video calls. It also has a robust HTML Web browsing experience with Adobe Flash 10.1, as well as support for a number of different formats, including DivX, Xvid, WMV, and MPEG-4.

Unfortunately the lag when scrolling through the menus or browser is painful on samsung products. Until Samsung ditches the people cooking their ROMs I think other companies may surpass them in terms of shipments when other companies start shipping tablets.

Plenty of other tablets on their way. I played with one at a VZW store and was impressed with the physical design of the GT, but the OS just feels quirky and modified in an after-thought way... which, it is. However the price is just a bit too high for me and I don't know enough about Android yet to really know what this thing can and can't do.

Don't bother with the tab. Tablets like the ADAM and Xoom give much better bang for your buck.
