Samsung has sold 600,000 Galaxy Tabs in little over three weeks, as tech fans flock to get onboard with the best Android tablet so far.
According to the Korea Herald, the figures cover 30 nations across the globe since November 2nd when the device debuted in shops. The sales might seem pretty small beer compared to the iPad, which has shifted a whopping 7.5 million units. But, in fairness, Apple's device has had a headstart of half a year or so.
Running Android 2.2 out of the box, the Tab packs a smaller screen than the iPad (it’s seven inches across compared to 9.7-inches), as well as front and rear mounted cameras for video calling. And unlike the iPad, the Tab doubles as a phone too. Albeit one that’s not about to slip very easily into your jeans pocket.
Buyers also get their hands on some specially created, exclusive apps and games that are optimised for use with the Tab, including titles from Gameloft, a rather smart eReader from WHSmiths and a Financial Times app.
You can pick up a Tab now on a range of contract plans with the likes of Vodafone and 3.
