Galaxy Tab returns under 2% in US insists Samsung

Samsung has denied analyst claims of sky-high Galaxy Tab returns, suggesting that figures indicating up to 16-percent return rates are entirely false. Instead, the company says, US return rates are under 2-percent. The news follows another clarification from earlier this week, when Samsung was thrown into damage control after reports suggested an exec had described sales of the tablet as "quite small"; in fact, the spokesperson had said "quite smooth" but seemingly been misunderstood during the quarterly financial call. At under 2-percent, that puts the Galaxy Tab return rate at around the same as what's been quoted for Apple's iPad, though the company is yet to announce official numbers. Samsung is expected to unveil a 10-inch Galaxy Tab with a dual-core processor at MWC 2011 later this month. [via SlashGear]

Galaxy Tab sales “smooth” not “small” insists Samsung

Samsung has challenged reports that Galaxy Tab sales have been "quite small", despite being the source of those very rumors. According to the company, a misheard executive during the recent financial results call led to reports of Galaxy Tab sales being "quite small" rather than, as Samsung claims was intended, "quite smooth." The company has snipped out the relevant part of the call and you can hear it in the video below. Meanwhile, Samsung is yet to comment on a report today that claimed Galaxy Tab returns rates reached as high as 16-percent in the US post-holidays. [youtube xN_w0mcDayI] [via SlashGear]

Galaxy Tab returns sky-high say analysts: Froyo to blame?

The Galaxy Tab sales situation goes from bad to worse as, only moments after Samsung was forced to admit that its much-lauded sales figures were in fact merely shipments to retailers and carriers, analysts suggest returns rates for the 7-inch slate have been surprisingly high. ITG crunched the numbers across 6,000 US retail locations and discovered that, between the November launch of the Galaxy Tab and January 15, 15-percent were returned. In the run up to the holiday period, the number was a little closer - at around 13-percent - but in the period after it rose to 16-percent, likely as unwanted gifts were returned. In comparison, ITG suggests, Verizon has been seeing just 2-percent returns on Apple's iPad since it began selling the larger iOS slate. ITG blames Android 2.2 Froyo as unsuited to tablet-scale use, despite Samsung's attempts to customize the platform with its own apps. Google will attempt to change its fortune in the tablet space later this week, with a Honeycomb launch event; for more on what that will bring to the table, check out our deep dive into Android 3.0.
