Samsung's Galaxy Tab hasn't launched yet here in the U.S., but sales have been so good in other parts of the world that the company is predicting big shipment numbers for the device by the end of the year. JK Shin, mobile division leader at Samsung, recently said that sales numbers for the Tab have been "quite good" so far, and that Samsung is "confident" that it will sell over one million units before 2010 is up. The Galaxy Tab is currently available in Europe and Asia, and will begin hitting the U.S. next week, with T-Mobile launching the device on November 10th.
Moving one million Galaxy Tabs is an impressive feat, especially when you remember that the device has been somewhat limited so far. While the iPad has sold quite a few more units (it currently makes up 95 percent of the tablet market), it's also been out since April. The fact that the Tab will be available on all four carriers, as well as a cheaper, WiFi-only model, should help boost sales of the Android-powered tablet even further. Plus, you know, there's the fact that it'll be getting both Gingerbread and Honeycomb at some point in the future.
