Samsung dismisses too few tablets sold claim

New models more important than the seven-incher

Business security measures using SSL

How well is Samsung's Android tablet line actually selling? Not so good, it has been claimed.

Samsung quickly denied the allegation, calling it "groundless", according to Reuters.

The company says it has sold more than 3m 7in Galaxy Tabs. We're sure it has, but how many of the tablets it has sold to retail partners - ie. the number of tablets it has shipped - have then been resold to punters?

Rumours are that the number is not high, Money Today said by way of Reuters. The site claimed the rumours put the level of unsold Tabs at "several hundred thousand units". At worse, that's seven per cent of the total number of Tabs shipped, according to Samsung.

At this stage, the probably doesn't matter. The 7in Tab was a foot-in-the-door product for Samsung, a chance to get ahead of its rival iPad competitors while it comes up with something more sleek and more sexy which, with the launch yesterday of 8.9in and 10in Galaxy Tab tablets, it has.

These models are far more important, as they offer a real challenge for Apple and other tablet makers. ®
