According to Korea Herald, Apple’s tablet device iPad is exceeding Samsung tablets’ sales on the Korean company’s home turf, certainly a worrying sign for the local company.

Following excerpt is taken from the Korea Herald:

Apple is estimated to have sold more than 1 million iPad tablet computers in the Korean market, outpacing its local rival Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Tab by a wide margin.


Apple’s iPad debuted here on Nov. 30, 2010 and its sequel iPad 2 was introduced on April 29 last year. About 700,000 units were sold last year alone, dominating the nascent tablet computer market here.

There is a common thought that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 it the most sold tablet on the Korean turf for the fact that Samsung is based in that country, the facts revealed by the Korea Times say another story. According to Korea Times’ report, in the Korea, there are about 700,000 iPad, two third of which are having Wi-Fi support.

The two companies are involved in a series of legal battle worldwide over patent infringements that have resulted in a number of lawsuits. The Cupertino-based company has just sued the South Korean-based electronics giant over an autocorrect patent.

In the recent time, Korea has become one of the major smartphone and tablet market and it seems that Apple is leading that market by a fair share.
