Samsung: We'll Ship 10,000,000 Galaxy Tabs

We still don't know how much the Galaxy Tab is going to cost when it's finally released. Recent rumors put the price at anywhere between $200 and $1,000. Regardless of the fact that they have yet to announce a price, Samsung believes the 7-inch tablet will be a screaming success. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung's Hankil Yoon said the company predicts it'll ship 10 million Galaxy Tabs and take a third of the global tablet market next year. Yoon went on to confirm Samsung's plans to eventually have a whole Galaxy Tab line, and said it is exploring the possibility of 10-inch or six-inch versions.

Late last week rumors began circulating regarding European pricing for the device. Though it wasn't clear whether the prices being bandied about by retailers were the full, unsubsidized prices, some people were shocked to see numbers upwards of £600. Samsung this week said that U.S. pricing for the device will be somewhere between $200 and $300, depending on carrier subsidies.
