About Samsung tablets

Samsung LogoSamsung produces and distributes appliances and electronics worldwide, and has established itself as a global powerhouse in the smartphone and tablet markets, rivalling the likes of Apple.

Samsung launched its first tablet computer, the Galaxy Tab, in November 2010, following the release of the Apple IPad in April of that year. The key difference between the two devices was that the Galaxy Tab came with a rear and front camera, whereas the iPad did not.

The original Galaxy Tab was a global success, selling over one million devices within a month of its release. Since then, Samsung has continued expanding its range of Galaxy devices, including eight Galaxy Tablet models and seven Galaxy Notes.
