OUCH. In 2010 Samsung shipped over 1,000,000 of its Galaxy Tabs. It only sold 20,000 of them. http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/sep/02/samsung-galaxy-tab That means that they sold 2% of the product they produced. That's a major ouch. Now we can see why they are giving away free tablets with TV purchases. (as reported by MacRumors here: link.) It's also interesting to note that in that article MacRumors wrote this: So, Apple, who sells millions of iPads per *month*, has their biggest competition from a company that sells 20,000 per *year*. Yikes. We can argue over the use of the word "competition", but we can clearly see no tablet is posing any threat whatsoever to the iPad. TouchPad is essentially dead. PlayBook is dead. GalaxyTab is standing at its already dug grave looking down. It's pretty crazy how Apple can jump in these markets with a product so damn good that no company on the entire planet can compete with them. It will be interesting to see how the Amazon tablet does. I read the news on it yesterday. It's a 7-inch tablet. And it's a Kindle tablet. Good access to Amazons infrastructure. I think the 7-inch is fail, and also the best thing about the Kindle was the e-ink technology. In my opinion, if you wanted an absolutely fantastic reading device that was why you bought a Kindle. So they kinda killed off their best feature. Also the storage, etc, is abysmal. ..... But, So many dang people use Amazon.com, and you know their tablet will be on the homepage there. People will definitely be talking about it. Price is nice too. It's going to be interesting.
