Samsung is aiming to sell one million Galaxy Tabs before the year is out, the manufacturer’s chief JK Shin said yesterday (3 November).
Shin said: ‘Although the launching of Galaxy Tab has been delayed a little bit [in Korea], consumer responses in Europe and Asia have been quite good and we are confident of meeting one million sales mark this year.’
The iPad has been shifting around a million units per month since its launch in April and has sold a total of seven million units so far.
Meanwhile, Samsung is looking to launch other tablet sizes as it tries to grab a bigger slice of the growing market.
Shin said: ‘Various tablet sizes will be launched by many companies next year. In order to cement our strong presence in the tablet market, Samsung is also preparing other kinds of tablet devices.’
Samsung also aims to ship more than 20 million Galaxy S smartphones this year, while it is aiming to double shipments of the smartphone next year.
