Samsung Galaxy Tab sales hit 600,000 Samsung Electronics has already sold 600,000 units of the Galaxy Tab tablet, says The Korea Herald, in less than a month after launch.
The tablet is available in 30 countries.

In Samsung's home country, Korea, SK Telecom has sold 30,000 units since launch last week.

"We believe tablet PCs will take over a bigger portion of the market next year," adds Samsung’s mobile division head Shin Jong-kyun. "For this year, we’re projecting to sell up to 1 million units."

Apple, the market leader, has sold 8 million iPad tablets since launch in April.

Samsung's tablet runs on Android 2.2, has a 1GHz processor, a 7-inch multi-touch screen and dual cameras.

Tab is simply better in every way.........PERIOD.

I challenge anyone to name one single feature on an IPad that bests this thing.

Screen size?

I am no Apple or 'i" fanboi but I will admit the 10" screen size is a plus in my book. I am wanting a tablet but until I get a 10" screen and flash capabilities...I will keep waiting.

I'm not expert on this product and not pretend to buy one but this one looks nice compare to the others including the Ipad.

that's not sold to the 'costumers' that's 600,000 units that was shipped to the market...
so that means its sold from samsungs factory to world wide phone carriers... not the people...
Its samsungs pure bull shit....and A bull shit version of a android phone... Ipad is at least a different platform from the iphone... This one has to use the same old android apps That will look ugly and doesnt even render the screen...

So, you have used it? I am assuming you have since you know for a fact that it sucks?
