600,000 Galaxy Tab tablets sold in first month

Samsung Electronics has sold over 600,000 Galaxy Tab tablets globally in the first month of sales.

The 7-inch tablet is the first major Android-based rival to Apple‘s popular iPad, which notched up one million sales in its first month, just in the US.

Samsung hopes to hit the one million mark by the end of the year.

Both devices run at a nippy 1GHz but the Galaxy Tab features Imagination’s latest PowerVR SGX540 graphics processor, while the iPad is believed to use the older PowerVR SGX535.

The Galaxy Tab also has the advantage of offering front and rear cameras, as well as support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1.

Of course one of the main differences between the two devices is that the Galaxy Tab is also a phone while the iPad doesn’t have voice capabilities.

Samsung’s device comes with a set of headphones and a mic, although practically it is probably best used as a speakerphone on a desk.
