Samsung has revealed that it has sold more than 600,000 Galaxy Tabs globally just a month after its launch. The company also said that demand has been outpacing supply in most countries and it aims to sell up to one million units by the end of the year.

According to the Korea Herald, about 30,000 units were sold through SK Telecom since its launch two weeks ago. The Galaxy Tab is now available in more than 30 countries including the US, UK, and Australia.
Despite strong sales, this is still not as good as Apple’s iPad, which sold 1 million units in 28 days. However, this only proves that there is a market for tablets worldwide.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is currently available in Australia for $999 upfront, but can also be obtained from Optus or Vodafone.
Optus is currently selling the tab for $0 on a $59.95 ‘Data Cap Plus’ plan for 24-months and includes 10 – 20GB of data as well as unlimited access to Facebook, Optus Zoo, Webmail, Twitter, MySpace, and the Australian application.
Vodafone, on the other hand, is offering the tab for $26 on its $49 16GB Mobile Broadband plan for 24 months or $0 on its $79 Unlimited Cap for 24 months which includes 4GB of data, unlimited standard national voice and video calls, standard national and international text, calls to 13 and 18 numbers, calls to customer care, and voicemail retrieval.
