Samsung Galaxy Tab sells 600,000 units in a monthBy Emil Protalinski 17 comments
Samsung has sold 600,000 units of its Galaxy Tab device worldwide, according to The Korea Herald. Since its launch on November 14, the device has amassed 30,000 unit sales alone in Korea, with the remaining devices being sold in 30 countries around the world, most in North America, Europe, and Asia. Samsung said consumer demand for its Galaxy Tab has outpaced supply in most countries.
Samsung seems to be on track to reach its target of 1 million units sold by the end of this year. The sales estimate is still short of Apple's iPad, which is currently dominating the tablet space; it had 95.5 percent market share in the previous quarter. Apple shipped 1 million of the iOS tablets in the first 28 days after launch. Samsung is planning to launch more Android tablets next year, but that won't be in time for this holiday season.
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.
