Samsung Galaxy Tab Takes on Apple iPad

Samsung have just announced that sales of their Galaxy Tab have passed the 1 million mark, just two months after going on sale.

Given all the media hype surrounding the gadget you could easily be forgiven for thinking that Apple’s iPad was the only tablet device on the market, but new sales figures show that Samsung is successfully staking a claim, too, with the Galaxy Tab.

The Galaxy Tab at a Glance

Powered by Android Operating System 2.2, the Samsung Galaxy Tab boasts PC-like web-browsing via a 7-inch screen, making it one of the best ways to enjoy multimedia content. As you expect, too, it also offers features such as e-mail, voice and video call, SMS/MMS and social networking features for Facebook and Twitter. You can also access over 100,000 apps, games, and widgets, too, via the Android Market.

One of the popular selling points to Apple’s iPad has been its appeal as an e-reader for eBooks, magazine and newspapers and the Galaxy Tab is no different, in fact Samsung claim you can access 1.8 million free books in 47 different languages. The service is powered by eReading service providers Kobo, PressDisplay and Zinio.

Similar to the all conquering iTunes Store, the Galaxy Tab also has a music hub, powered by 7digital, giving music fans access to a range of different music, both old and new, to buy, with 10 million tracks available to buy.

The Galaxy Tab comes with 3G HSPA connectivity, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. It is also web browser optimised, supporting flash and has an inbuilt Micro SD card reader.

So if you are looking for an alternative to the Apple iPad, a good place to start could be Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.
