Samsung expects to sell a million Galaxy Tabs this year, 40 million smartphones next year.


We’ve already heard Samsung boast that it expects to ship 10 million Galaxy Tabs by next year, and the company’s now back at the prediction game yet again, with mobile biz president J.K. Shin saying he expects the company to sell a million of them this year alone — given that the end of the year is fast approaching, that translates to a million sold in just under 60 days. As if that wasn’t enough, Shin also told Nikkei that Samsung expects to sell 40 million smartphones in 2011, which is more than double its projection for this year — of those, it obviously expects the majority to be Galaxy S phones, but it has quite a way to go from ten million it expects to sell this year. Incidentally, Shin also dropped another hint that Samsung would “soon” be releasing a 10-inch Galaxy Tab, but he doesn’t seem to have provided any more details than we’ve heard before.
