A Korean newspaper The Korean Herald has reported that Samsung have managed to sell more than 600,000 Galaxy Tab worldwide. The newspaper reports that these numbers have been confirmed from the company itself. Earlier, analysts suggested that the sales of Galaxy Tab is pretty weak worldwide due to its high pricing.
However, the sales figure of the Tab sure has managed to beat the analysts’ prediction. According to the newspaper, the demand for the tablet is higher than its supply in many countries. In its home land Korea Samsung has managed to sell around 30,000 units since the Tab launched on November 14. At its current pace, the sales of Galaxy Tab will be able to meet Samsung’s expectation of 1 million units by the year end.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab has to be the first tablet running Android 2.2 to have sold in such huge numbers. Even though not an iPad killer, the Galaxy Tab sure is a worthy competitor to the Apple iPad.
