Samsung denies 16% Galaxy Tab return rate

Samsung has refuted claims that its Galaxy Tab slate has high return levels of around 16% in the US.

This one-in-six figure popped up courtesy of ITG Investment Research, who according to the Galaxy Tabs website, derived the percentage from a study of 6,000 retail outlets.

Samsung issued a statement which said: “The return rate of the Galaxy Tab in the US as claimed by an North American market research firm is incorrect. According to Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Business the return rate is below 2%.”

That would put the Tab on a par with the iPad, which has also been estimated as having a return rate of around 2% in America.

Samsung shipped some 2 million of its 7 inch tablet in the final quarter of 2010.

  1. Darren, you’ve got to be kidding. It was a big deal last week when Samsung admitted they did not sell 2 million units but instead had shipped 2 million units to stores.

  2. You’re quite right Pustoolio, final sentence now corrected.

    I somehow missed that story, and evidently spent at least part of last week lodging beneath a rock.
