Samsung Galaxy Tab Hits One Million Mark on Sales

December 6, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Though the Samsung Galaxy Tab was reported to perform not so well in the markets in the beginning, now it seems the tablet is picking up the market lessons gradually. Now it has hit the one million mark in sales numbers worldwide.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab was made available on sale in the US markets by Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile from mid-November. Just before the Thanksgiving Day shopping frenzy, Samsung reported a 600,000 unit sale of the tablet. Now after about two weeks, the Android 2.2 based tablet is reported to have touched the 1 million mark.

The Black Friday sales have undoubtedly contributed very much to the journey of this 7-inch tablet to the one million mark.

The four carriers in the US who sell it -with contracts and without contracts- have confirmed that they are encouraged with the customer response towards the Galaxy Tab which is expected to become a great rival to the Apple iPad. However, the carriers were not ready to reveal any of the sales figures with them.

Well, Apple had a clear market base before it launched its tablet device and is doing well in the market. The fact that the first tablet device from Samsung has made it to the one million mark within a short time span is worth celebrating for the company. We feel that part of the credit of this success goes for the Android OS it runs.
