We recently ran the story of Samsung selling 2 million Galaxy Tabs in three months, however it looks like we now need to amend that slightly!

According to the Wall Street Journal “during the company’s quarterly earnings call on Friday, a Samsung executive revealed those figures don’t represent actual sales to consumers. Instead, they are the number of Galaxy Tab devices that Samsung has shipped to wireless companies and retailers around the world since product’s formal introduction in late September”.

There is a huge difference in the meaning of this number, shipping to “wireless companies and retailers” doesn’t mean that end consumers have actually purchased these units, so it’s unclear what percentage of the 3 million sent out actually constitutes sales figures.
