MoneyToday reported rumors on Wednesday that Samsung, who has just announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and a revamped Galaxy Tab 10.1 at CTIA, is experiencing a stock backlog reaching into the several hundred thousands after selling a meager 3 million units of their 7-inch Galaxy Tab since it’s launch last fall. In typical fashion, Samsung is denying the reports. Spokesperson for the mobile manufacturer James Chung said, “We don’t comment on market speculation, but such talk is absolutely groundless.”
Along with the irony of the two halves of that compound sentence, Chung offered, “Our tablet strategy is offering a broad product range with different sizes to support wider customer choice.”
Whether that “choice” is actually leading to a build-up of stock in Samsung’s warehouses we may not know for sure, but remember this isn’t the first time confusion has arisen from Galaxy Tab sales. Quite small or quite smooth, that is the question.
