The Samsung Galaxy Tab was launched in the UK this week, with consumers in the US getting their hands on the device next week. It sees Samsung releasing their first tablet PC to take on the iPad.

Carrie-Ann Skinner of PCWorld is reporting that Samsung’s president of mobile business JK Shin expects the company will sell over a million Galaxy Tabs this year. He said “I estimate we will be able to sell more than a million units worldwide by the end of this year.”

The smart looking 7-inch device is powered by a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird Arm-based processor, and runs Android Froyo 2.2. Chin added “You can literally use it by holding it in one hand or put it into the inside pocket of your suit.”

According to studies by ABI Research tablet PCs are expected to shift over 11 million units by the end of this year. The company has also seen its Galaxy S smartphone be a success by shifting over 5 million units since it was launched in June, and hope to sell another 5 million handsets by the end of the current quarter.
