Samsung Has Not Sold 2 Million Galaxy Tablets

Samsung has not sold 2 million Galaxy tablets since launch, or ever. The company released this number last week, but today said that these numbers did not refer to sales to consumers, but rather to shipment figures to retailers and carrier partners.

SlashGear has more: “The company had announced 1m sales of the 7-inch Android tablet back in early December 2010, and claimed to have passed the 2m sales point late last week; however, when questioned during Samsung’s quarterly earnings call, the WSJ reports, a Samsung executive admitted that actual customer sales were still ‘quite small.’”

The company lowered the price of the tablets from $600 to $299 last week, and now maybe we know why. Besides all of the competition that debuted at CES, it seems that getting their tablet to market earlier than most tablet makers has not yet turned into actual sales.
