Samsung Galaxy Tab Crosses 1 Million Milestone

Now days tablet PCs are very famous worldwide. Tablet pc is a personal computer which is equipped with a touchscreen as a primary input device and is designed to be operated and owned by an individual. The term was made famous as a concept created by Microsoft in 2001 but tablet PCs now refer to any tablet sized personal computer unconcerned of the Operating System.

In tablet computers you don’t need a keyboard because they are fully touchscreen computers so they use a virtual onscreen substitute and all tablet PCs have a wireless adaptor for internet and local network connection. You can get software with a tablet PC like Office suites, web browser, games and a range of different applications. On the other hand since portable computer hardware components are low powered then demanding personal computer applications may not provide an ideal experience to the user.

Recently launched Samsung’s Galaxy Tab which is tablet computer hit more than 1 million sets sold all over the world last week. It’s a similar new edge computer like Apple iPad. Samsung is giving thanks to the users of this tablet pc for such big numbers. There are many bearers in the United States who have been selling this tab like Verizon, At & T, T-Mobile and Sprint with both contract and separately. The increase in sales of this tab had a lot to do with Black Friday holiday shoppers. It’s because of selling this kind of new thing would be cause for wild celebrations on the other hand the rival of Samsung, Apple has been selling its iPad since April 2010 and Apple sent out million of iPads in just 30 days and now Apple sent out almost 4 millions of their famous gadgets in its fourth quarter which ended in October 2010.

Samsung also sent out 5 million Galaxy S phones to their customers worldwide and in those sales 3 million phones sold out in United States. It you add the Galaxy tab sales in that then it shows that people likes Android based products.

Android is an operating System based on Google’s Linux and it has been targeted by manufacturers for the tablet space. Its success on smartphones is due to its open nature and support for low cost ARM systems like Apples iOS in 2010.

Several tablet PC makers have standardized on a 12” widescreen format and with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. The 12” form factor is optional for the power, weight and size contemplation required for portability.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab has a seven inch view screen which is a small screen and any users like to use a small screen tab. It has a video camera but not with a very nice quality on the other hand you can see that Apple iPad has no camera.

Samsung Galaxy Tab gets priced by O2 Germany

The Samsung Galaxy tab is a compact tablet computer that was launched on 2nd September at the 2010 IFA in Berlin. It features Wi-Fi capability, a 7 inch TFT-LCD touchscreen, a 1.0 GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, and the Swype input system. It is also equipped with a 3.2 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front facing camera for the purpose of video calls.

Ever since it was launched, the early impressions on the product were positive by technology reviewers. There have been lots of speculations going on in the market regarding its final price. In the early stages after its launch, people were more concerned about its performance and how its tablets would work together with its other products.

More than a couple of days back, few details have become known regarding future Android tablet prices in Germany. One of the German barriers that are going to sell the Galaxy tab is O2, and the official price is 759 Euros. Although there is no subsidy for the Galaxy tab, you do not have to pay all the cash at once. O2 would let you pay the amount in monthly installments, for a 24 month long period. What you need to do here is pay a 99 Euro deposit, followed by 24 monthly installments of 27.50 Euros each.

However, there is no indication from O2 that they would lower the price anytime soon, especially in the case of bundling the price with new data plans. With the new price, you would not get any 3G data plan from O2; therefore, if you wish to get the facility of any such new products, you would be required to pay over and above what you are already paying.

It has started to become clear why Samsung hadn’t come up with the official price of the tablet at the time of its release. Many experts are of the opinion that it was because the device is more expensive that it’s direct competitor, the iPad. Even though the device is a 7 inch tablet and smaller than the iPad, packing in some of the features that are not present in the latter, they do not exactly justify the huge price.

What would make the clash between the iPad and the Samsung Galaxy tab even more interesting is Apple’s launch of a new iPad tablet in the first quarter of next year. People would wait for its launch with baited breath and would be most curious to know about its price, as the upgraded tablet would bring in some of the additional features not present in the current versions. If prices of the new tablets are same as their previous models, then it would be a serious blow to the Galaxy tab by Samsung.

There may be a unanimous opinion about the wonderful features of the Samsung Galaxy tab. No one seems to question them but the product’s high price and its direct competition with the Apple iPad may make things slightly difficult for it.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Release
