Samsung Galaxy Tab sales did not actually reach 2 million over six weeks in 2011

Things can get pretty ugly when two giants go toe-to-toe in court. And that is where Samsung and Apple are these days. The latest punch comes from Apple in the direction of Samsung. It turns out that Samsung did not actually sell 2 million Galaxy Tab units six weeks in 2011 as Strategy Analytics had originally reported. And with this report came the big news that Apple’s tablet market share had fallen. But now it all looks like that was untrue.

An internal report brought forward in court reveals that Samsung actually sold 1 million Galaxy Tab units for all of 2011. The same document highlights Barnes & Noble’s Nook and Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets outselling Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. And Apple dominated the market with 17.4 million iPads sold in 2011. Samsung misled just about everyone by reporting higher Galaxy Tab sales.

    Doesn’t surprise me. Until recently Samsung has only produced extremely overpriced, junky tablets (seriously, look at there line up from before last year. It’s horrible. It’s why I got an iPad).
