Samsung Galaxy Tab Sells One Million Units

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is selling better than expected. The company set a year-end goal of one million units for itself. Samsung hit that number with a full month left (which, just happens to be the one that Christmas falls in), and is pushing its prediction for 2010 up to 1.5 million.
It’s a big jump over Samsung’s previously announced numbers. Last week, the company announced that it had sold 600,000 units, worldwide. Part of that is, no doubt, due to the fact that the tablet was released in more countries–it’s now available in 64 countries, for a total of 120 carriers. The device has sold 100,000 units in tits first 60 days in the US.
How does all of this compare to the iPad? That device managed to sell more than two million units in its first two months. The Next Web points out that Apple’s tablet didn’t really have much competition when it was launch–though that was no doubt something of a mixed bag for the company which had the difficult job of convincing consumers and reporters that the world needed another screen.
All of that said, Samsung is not doubt quite happy with these numbers, having outpaced its own expectations and established the Galaxy as the number two device in what is sure to become a very, very crowded field in the near future
