Samsung Galaxy Tab

Samsung has reported strong Galaxy Tab sales in the past, most recently claiming that two million Tabs have been sold in three months. A new statement from a Sammy exec, though, reveals that the Tab may not actually be that popular with consumers. During the company's fourth quarter earnings call, Lee Young-hee admitted that the two million figure actually represented "sell-in," or the number of devices shipped to carriers and retailers. The "sell-out," or the number of Tabs actually sold to customers, Young-hee says, is "quite small." Specific sell-out numbers weren't mentioned.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise, especially considering how much Samsung has been touting the Tab's sales over the past couple of months. While we don't know for sure how many Samsung tablets have actually been sold to consumers, I can't imagine that the figures are terribly great if the company won't actually share numbers with everyone. Still, Samsung says the Tab's sell-out was "quite OK" and that they're "quite optimistic" about 2011. The company is expected to unveil the Galaxy Tab successor at MWC, so perhaps the Tab 2 will be a little more successful now that the tablet market is a bit more mature. What do you all think?
