Samsung to Sell 10 Million Galaxy Tabs

By this time next year, Samsung is confident that over 10 Million Samsung Galaxy Tab devices will have been sold.

The Galaxy Tab was officially unveiled at IFA last week where it was confirmed that it has a 7 inch screen, runs the Android 2.2 operating system and will be running head to head with the Apple iPad.

By shifting 10 million Galaxy Tablets the company estimate that this will take about one-third of the tablet market worldwide.

One of the sore points at the moment is the pricing for the Tab. Several retailers in Europe have given the device a price tag of around $1000 which puts it more expensive than the iPad. In the US it is expected to retail for $200 – $400 although that will be subsidised/contract pricing.

As for technical specs, the Tab has a Super TFT LCD display with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. For connectivity it has Wireless 802.11n as well as Bluetooth 3.0 and 3G.

The device has a couple of cameras with the one on the back being 3 megapixels and the one on the front being 1.3 megapixels.

We’ll take a look back this time next year to see if Samsung hit the 10 million units sold.
