Samsung: Over 600,000 Galaxy Tabs Have Been Sold

According to a Korea Herald report, Samsung says it has sold over 600,000 Galaxy Tab Android tablets worldwide.

That figure represents the first 30 days of sales of the tablet, which is been available in over 30 countries in North America, Europe and Asia. 

The number puts Samsung on track to reach its goal of one million devices sold by the end of the year.

The Galaxy Tab is a 7-inch Google Android-powered tablet computer that competes with Apple's iPad.  It arrived in the U.S. through four wireless carriers in mid-November, including Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is widely seen by reviewers as a worthy competitor to the iPad, which has been purchased by over 7.5 million users since it launched in April.

Samsung has promised to offer a Wi-Fi-only version of the device.  However, BestBuy, who was expected to sell the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab, said there was a "manufacturer delay" that kept them from selling the tablet this month.

The Tab has some advantages over the iPad, including dual cameras and Adobe Flash support.  It has been seen as the only worthy competitor to the iPad.
