Samsung Galaxy Tab sales top 600,000, to hit 1 million by end-2010
The figure comes to respond to speculations from Wall Street analyst Ashkok Kumar about poor sales and a 50 per cent production cut of the tablet. Samsung Galaxy Tab was launched in mid-October as the first serious competitor to Apple's iPad. Despite its smaller size, it offers Adobe Flash support, and with Android on board, it is a worthy alternative. We weighed the pros and cons of both tablets to help you make the best choice for your needs.
Tablets were practically terra incognita in the mobile landscape before Apple launched the iPad in April, but now the situation has changed. “We believe tablet PCs will take over a bigger portion of the market next year”, Samsung’s mobile division head Shin Jong-kyun noted. Do you think you actually need a tablet? Let us know in the comments.

Samsung never claimed that its tablet isn't selling well. It was a rumor that spread the idea that samsung is cutting 50% of its production.
Anyhow, I knew sooner or later samsung will jump out claim otherwise.. ahah

I agree. I love Android but if you're going to make an Android tablet it has to be at least 9 or 10 inches. I also love my iPad, which was totally unexpected because I was really unimpressed by the ip4. But to me it feels more like a computer because of that bigger screen. I can only imagine how the market would shift if someone put out an Android OS tablet with iPad specs and a camera. (Frontfacing camera are ok but overated imho). Hopefully we'll see that on the Galaxy Tab 2.

@chaman: i doubt you actuallly have one, i think your just saying that. because i have one and its probably the best purchase i've ever made. it is super fast and super quality and it already has thousands of apps developed especially for it. the Samsung Galaxy will have trouble running apps because they are designed for smartphones, not tablets

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...
