Samsung Sells 600,000 Galaxy Tabs, But Questions Linger

Interesting. Samsung is receiving some mixed but usually positive reviews for the Galaxy Tab. There are reports that they’ve cut back on production, which I dismiss as wrong, if not curious, given the timing. Now we’re hearing that the WiFi Galaxy Tab has been delayed by manufacturing issues thanks to an eagle eye from Jeff Jarvis who pointed out this Best Buy notice.

I’m guessing the carriers are having too much fun being short-sighted and messing with consumers as they sell packages in their usual way and don’t want to see the WiFi edition hit the shelves yet. But that’s just speculation on my part.

    The big question is: did Samsung sell 600k Galaxy Tabs or did consumers buy 600k Galaxy Tabs? Samsung, unlike Apple, is not selling these direct to consumers. Whatever they sell to retailers counts as sales to Samsung. There’s nothing dishonest about that; they simply record sales differently than Apple does.

    Very good point Sumocat. I’ve seen the same type of math when manufacturers brag about ###,### units shipped. Yes they’ve technically shipped them to resellers, but not sold them to end users.
