It has been less than 2 months since the Samsung Galaxy Tab was released, but it has already sold 1 million units worldwide. The Galaxy Tab is the best Android tablet around, so the numbers are not surprising.
Compared to the iPad, which sold 1 million units in exactly 28 days, the Galaxy Tab completed 1 million sales in slightly more than a month, as it first became available around the end of October. In the US though, which is probably its largest market, it became available only after November 10, so in a way, it might have beaten the iPad in terms of sales. Such a comparison is not exactly fair, because the Galaxy Tab is available in many more countries than the iPad, 64 to be precise.
The sales of the Galaxy Tab have been consistently great, despite the high pricing; in fact, it had sold 600,000 Galaxy Tab units by November 22, which means that it pushed out 400,000 Tabs in just 10 days.
Samsung has also increased its sales estimates to 1.5 million Galaxy Tabs by the end of 2010, but I wouldn’t find it surprising if it clears 2 million units by then, extrapolating from the current figures. With the Christmas holiday season in sight, it might even sell more.
