Samsung Electronics Co. revealed on Sunday that it has sold more than 600,000 Galaxy Tabs globally since launch. This means that the Korean company is on track with 1 million tablets expected to be sold by the end of this year, as they stated a few weeks ago.
According to Koreaherald, Samsung sold in Korea around 30,000 Galaxy Tabs since its launch on 14 November through SK Telecom. The company stated that “the consumer demand for its Galaxy Tab has been robust, outpacing supply in most countries.”
“We believe tablet PCs will take over a bigger portion of the market next year,” Samsung’s mobile division head Shin Jong-kyun said at the IFA gadget expo in Berlin in September. “For this year, we’re projecting to sell up to 1 million units.”
