Samsung Sells 600,000 Galaxy Tab Worldwide

Samsung_Galaxy_tabA 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.

Samsung To Launch The Galaxy Tab In India On October 29

The folks over at CellPassion have apparently received an invitation from Samsung for an upcoming press conference to be held by them on October 29. The Invite says “let’s tab….let’s talk”. From this tag line, it is pretty clear that Samsung will be unveiling their latest creation the Samsung Galaxy Tab in India.  Samsung_Galaxy_Tab

Rumors suggest that Samsung will be pricing the Galaxy Tab at around Rs. 40,000.   It will be interesting to see if Samsung launches a subsidized carrier version of the Galaxy Tab with some packaged data plans in India.

Since at its rumored price the Galaxy Tab will be priced higher than the iPad, I doubt the Galaxy Tab will find many takers.

Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Tab To Cost $1000?

Samsung announced the highly anticipated Galaxy Tab few days ago. However, what the company did not announce was the pricing of the device. Rumors are floating around on the Internet about the pricing of the device. Galaxy Tab The specification of the Galaxy Tab looks very promising and its success now solely depends on its price. It is very important for Samsung to price the device right. Now time for the bad news.

Slashgear managed to get their hands on a screenshot of the pricing detail of the unlocked Galaxy Tab from Amazon and things looks pretty bad. From the leaked screenshot, it looks like the unlocked Galaxy Tab will be priced at Euros 799 or $1000. Now that is definitely way too much for a tablet I or for that matter anyone else would like to shell out. Rumors also suggest that the subsidized version of the Galaxy Tab will cost anywhere between $200-$400 which definitely hits the sweet spot for me.

Hopefully, Samsung will work closely with network operators to subsidize the price of the Galaxy Tab. Otherwise, I doubt the Galaxy Tab will be an iPad killer as many people had hoped for.
