Samsung's global Galaxy Tab sales lag behind Apple iPad at 600K - Page 3

DaHarder, on the other hand, waxes positively rhapsodic over the obvious and nearly unlimited advantages of each and every Apple competitor that comes on the market. He consigns each piece of Apple kit to the dustbin of history, having been obviously outclassed and obsoleted by whatever.

The larger question, however, is that, given these awesome and clearly preferable user experience of these various devices, to what end do people such as DaHarder (or you, much of the time) waste your time posting here?

What kind of fucked up mental illness is it, exactly that drives the need to constantly refute "fan boys", instead of seeking out the company of people using the equipment you prefer and talking about that?

You DO realize this is to help preserve battery life, right? To me, if an app is doing nothing for me while I'm not using it, i don't want it to drain my battery/CPU. But that's just me being logical.

For me, it affords the use of a quick glance at a single screen to see my appointments, Twitter feed, Facebook updates, contacts, et al without having to wade through page-after-page of look-alike icons, or open single stand-alone app.

Anyway we are all just AI's pawns when it comes to these click bait articles. They do it on purpose. They know how it will turn out. Makes you wonder who the actual trolls are here.

Given that the vast majority of these devices have large enough batteries to power them in excess of 7 to 8 hours (in the galaxy Tab's case based on my usage), and many of us charge them nightly, these are no longer legitimate concerns.

I wonder what that 600K sold means. It might just be units sold to resellers in preparation for the holiday season. If that's the case, 600K might be "all she wrote" for the rest of the year.
post #91 of 314
with no other real Android competition, pent-up fanDroid demand, and the holidays Samsung should certainly be able to sell 1 million Galaxy tabs a month worldwide through the end of the year. but then it will drop like a rock as newer Android models and other tabs come to market ... and the iPad 2 freeze-the-market wait begins.

so Samsung achieved its strategic goal by being the first OEM with something credible. how much that matters next year we'll see

of course iPad holiday demand will be huge. Apple must be selling 2-3 million per month right now. now that the important 4.2 update is out, expect a massive Apple marketing blitz with lots of new ads. and Apple does that better than anyone ...

Any ideas why posters like DaHarder do it? It sure sounds like an inferiority complex to me. I mean. come on, over a thousand posts in just over a year, all negative, derisive. and demeaning to all things Apple. And why do the moderators allow this to go on and on, day after day when the intent is obvious?

Tell me the ones to join and i will back you up. It seems Fandroids have nothing better to do with their time then post on Apple Forums.

I call bullshit on the 600,000 "sold"... maybe 600,000 shipped with only 150,000 actually sold.

Get ready for deep discounts just before December 25th... and then DaHarder really can own 9 units.

(I still can't figure out why he leaves the house with 2 different devices... the iPhone does everything I need it to do when on the go and when I get home I can use any number of other Apple hardware to accomplish other tasks.)

Firstly: I never said anything about having 9 units, there are currently 3 each Galaxy Tab's in my house, but only one is mine, same situation with the iPad.

Secondly: No one asked (or cares) if you can or can't 'figure out' what others do with their resources/gadgets.

You DONT have that option AT ALL in iOS.

The iPad your friend has is almost the same as yours, sans background display.

Wow you can spend lots of time rearranging the 10 useful apps, 9 of which were made by Google. It really does look like a nice device if you want to read email and surf the web on a lightly bigger screen than a cell phone. Not much else is ever going to happen with it though.

It is a well known fact that Android apps are vastly inferior to their iOS brethren.

daharder - ios fragmentation isn't anywhere near as bad - or as extreme - as android fragmentation.

most android apps are watered down for the lowest common denominator.

Disagree... though I do find that iOS is indeed 'watered down for the lowest common denominator'.

Samsung has revealed that it sold 600,000 units of its Galaxy Tab touchscreen tablet worldwide in the first month, compared to more than a million iPads sold in the U.S. alone in less than a month earlier this year.

The numbers, detailed by The Korea Herald, show that Samsung's tablet has had a healthy start, but the device still lags behind the iPad. For comparison, Apple's Wi-Fi-only tablet sold more than a million units when it launched in the U.S. alone earlier this year, and before the 3G model launched.

The Galaxy Tab saw a much quicker international rollout than the iPad, debuting in Italy in mid-October. The 7-inch touchscreen tablet recently launched in the U.S. on Nov. 11, and is available through all four major wireless carriers.

The iPad debuted in the U.S. in early April with the Wi-Fi-only model, and the 3G version launched stateside a month later. International sales of the iPad were delayed as Apple struggled to meet demand, and the product launched on May 28 in Germany, the U.K., Australia, Switzerland, Spain, Italy and France.

The Galaxy Tab is noteworthy because it is the first major touchscreen tablet based on the Google Android mobile operating system. While Samsung modified Android to work on the larger tablet screen, Google is expected to introduce tablet-specific features in the next update to Android, codenamed "Gingerbread."

Another hopeful iPad rival, the HP Slate, sold just 9,000 units, it was revealed earlier this month. The Windows 7-based touchscreen device was given a hyped debut early this year before the iPad was introduced, in an attempt to steal some of Apple's thunder.

Have they sold 600,00 to customers or resellers?

apple will gain even greater word of mouth for the ipad with ios 4.2

ads this season will smoke the competition - just played around with streaming video to my apple tv from the ipad - phenomenal!

printing works great, multitasking works extremely well - this is a solid release that elevates the platform and puts a major hurt on android devices.

that's the only advantage you get with android, but you lose all of the ios advantages.

apple will get around to adding that functionality to ios. if they do it in any way similar to the way multitasking was added to the ipad, it'll definitely trounce android.

What you call "All-App Multi-Tasking" is idiotic to put into a mobile device, for the following reasons:

1. Drain on resources - battery, CPU, and memory.

2. Poor (overall) performance - see #1

3. Due to the UI on mobile devices, not all apps need to be multitasking.

For those apps which need to be multitasking, ios allows those apps access to multitasking services to handle background processing, streaming, etc. Between ios multitasking services, and notifications, battery, CPU, and memory usage are minimized.

That's why IOS devices get excellent battery life and android devices don't.

Dramatic Much?

You just happen to disagree with some of my posts, and appear to lack the tact/maturity to deal with it respectfully and rationally.

It might not even be 600K shipped--just orders for 600K--with far fewer actually in end-users' hands.
