Galaxy Tab sales soar past 1 million mark, Samsung says(Read article summary)
Samsung Galaxy Tab continues to pick up sales momentum.
In late November, Samsung said it had sold 600,000 Galaxy Tab units worldwide. This week, the company announced it had sold upwards of a million Galaxy Tabs – and again predicted that it would hit the 1.5 million-unit-sold mark by the beginning of next year.
The device has earned solid marks from reviewers, despite its 7-inch screen, which Apple CEO Steve Jobs once publicly derided as too small for most users. In a positive review of the Galaxy Tab in the New York Times, David Pogue noted that "Samsung sweated the details on this thing. The screen is gorgeous. The touch response is immediate and reliable. The whole thing is superfast and a pleasure to use."
