According to a report from Korean news agency Yonap, Samsung on Wednesday confirmed that sales of its Galaxy Tab Android -powered tablet have passed the 2 million mark. Samsung announced that Galaxy Tab sales had surpassed 1 million units early last month, and now this new milestone comes after roughly three months of availability. The Galaxy Tab is Samsung’s first Android tablet, and the device has been popular in the U.S. — having been launched by all four major cellular carriers — and in other key markets around the world. The report states that Samsung’s tablet is available in 94 countries from 200 different wireless carriers. The Tab’s top three regions are Europe, North America and Asia, where Samsung has sold 500,000 units, 350,000 units and 330,000 units respectively. Samsung is expected to unveil the second-generation Galaxy Tab next month at Mobile World Congress.
