Samsung shifts 1 million Tabs

That’s a lot of tablets
Mon Dec 06 2010, 16:20

KOREAN GIANT Samsung has sold one million of its 7-inch Galaxy Tab devices.

The firm confirmed the lofty numbers in an email to us, but would not be drawn on how many it had sold in the UK.

The Galaxy Tab has been seen as a worthy competitor to the Ipad, which sold one million units in about a month. Although it has not been in the shops long, it has won good reviews wherever it goes and is slightly more reasonably priced than its cappuccino competitor.

It does have some catching up to do though. Apple announced that in its last financial quarter ended in October, it sold over four million of its tablet devices, and that number is only likely to have increased in the runup to the Christmas.

Samsung's tablet is likely to continue to sell, although perhaps not as fast as the Ipad has. Meanwhile, while Apple will not bend on the preferred size of a tablet, the Korean firm is already working on a bigger screen version of its netbook without a keyboard.

We liked the Samsung Galaxy Tab when we reviewed it, but the Ipad, not so much. µ
