Samsung Galaxy Tab Hit by Poor Sales; Production Halved

November 17, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

New info suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Tab, considered to become the Apple iPad’s first real rival, is struggling in the most important first phase of its sales. An analyst is suggesting that the production of the tablet has been cut down due to a slow start in sales.

The mobile devices from Samsung seem to have become quite popular around the world. If you need proof on the matter, you just have to look into the sales numbers of the Samsung Galaxy S phone.

But the company’s latest and greatest tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab isn’t quite living up to sales expectations. An analyst at Rodman & Redshaw is saying that Samsung has cut the production of the device in half. The analyst is predicting that the tablet sales in general will come down as consumers opt for inexpensive laptops or smartphones.

We believe that there is a chance that the prediction might come true.

Samsung does have a lot of fans around the world, but it does not have Apple’s fame when it comes to tablets. Yet the company is selling the Galaxy Tab, a smaller tablet, for almost the same money. Although the Galaxy Tab comes with a lot of awesome features, its price is a bit high. This may force customers to choose less expensive tablets or go for laptops or smartphones coming with a lower price tag.

But there is also a possibility that customers are waiting for the WiFi version. We may have to wait a little while longer to know what the fate of the Galaxy Tab will be. But for now, Samsung’s target of selling more than 6 million Galaxy Tabs looks uncertain.

We wonder what Steve Jobs will think when he hears about this new info.

What are your thoughts on the new info? Do you think that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will succeed in the markets? Provide us with your most valuable comments.
