15% Return Rate For Samsung Galaxy Tab Claims New Research
According to tech analyst firm ITG, 15% of consumers who've purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab from a U.S. carrier have returned it.
The picture regarding sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab has gotten muddier. First the company crowed about sales of one million, then two million tablets. Then, speaking to press, a Disturbing new research has emerged that claims that up to 15% of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab have been returned with consumers claiming that they are "not happy". No specific reason has been given by the research Company as to why consumers are returning the Android device which according to Samsung Australia executives was in limited supply in Australia due to strong demand.
It's expected that Samsung will update their current model 7" Galaxy Tab to the new Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system in Australia within the next few months.Another reason being speculated according to InformationWeek is that Motorola announced its Xoom tablet in early January at the CES trade show, giving Tab owners another Android tablet option -- one that will support 4G, one that will have a bigger screen, one that has dual-core processors, and one that supports Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
