So much for dead in the water
After being written off as “dead in the water” by the tame Apple press and Steve Jobs, it appears that the Samsung has flogged more than a million of its Galaxy Tabs in two months.
It was the first serious competition to the Apple iFad and came out at roughly the same price and with a smaller 7-inch touchscreen and runs a modified version of Google’s Android operating system.
The iPad was considered a record breaker because it flogged a million in 28 days. Steve Jobs derided 7-inch tablets during an earnings call saying that the current crop of 7-inch tablets are going to be DOA — dead on arrival.
Looks like he got that wrong, and the mistaken belief that people did not want seven inch tablets. We wonder what he will say when the new batch of much cheaper tablets hit the shops.
