Korean electronics giant Samsung has claimed to already have shipped 7 million units of the Galaxy S smartphone and set targets of selling as many as 20 million units of the Galaxy S and one million units of its recently launched Galaxy Tab tablet.
Company's mobile division chief Shin Jong-kyun said in an interview that the company was targeting 20 million smartphone sales in 2010 and double the figure by the end of next year. Out of the total 7 million sales of the Galaxy S,
3 million were recorded in the United States, where Samsung has been associated with low-end handsets.
The target is an improvement over company's original aim of selling 18 million units of the handset this year.
The Samsung Galaxy S is an Android-powered smartphone, which has stunning features like that of 1GHz processor, a 4-inch super AMOLED screen, and Google Maps navigation.
The company also has high hopes from its Galaxy Tab tablet computer, which is a 7-inch touchscreen device that can also be used as a phone. Tab's screen has a resolution of 1024 by 600 pixels, with other striking features like that of 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 Hummingbird processor, a HDMI dock and QWERTY keyboard dock, Bluetooth 3.0, triband HSDPA, quadband GSM, two cameras- one at the front and one at the back, with LED Flash.
