Selling alongside the iPad, the smaller Galaxy Tab has found a market.
Samsung said it had moved one million Galaxy Tabs less than two months after launch and less than a month after its U.S. launch on T-Mobile on November 10. Apple (AAPL) sold 2 million iPads in its first two months, though those weren't holiday shopping months (nor did Apple have any competition).
Samsung announced two weeks ago it had sold 600,000 Tabs and was on track to sell a million by the end of the year. It has revised those earlier sales forecasts upward from 1 million in 2010 to 1.5 million units by year end. It is hard not to be impressed with the success of the Tab.
Clearly the Tab has found a market with its smaller, "pocket-friendly" form factor, cameras, Google's (GOOG) Android 2.2 OS, and its compatibility with Adobe's Flash. It is now available through some 120 mobile carriers in 64 countries.
