Snippet: Samsung Lied About Galaxy Tab Sales ☇

Shared on April 11, 2014

Completing the Trifecta of Stupidity™ today, Philip Elmer-DeWitt (who certainly is not stupid) reports:

This week we learned, thanks to a February 2012 internal Samsung document marked “top secret” and unearthed by Apple as part of its ongoing patent infringement proceedings, that we were right and those more credulous news outlets were wrong.

When Strategy Analytics was telling the world that Samsung sold nearly 2 million Galaxy Tabs in six weeks, the truth was that it took Samsung all of 2011 to sell half that many in the U.S., its single biggest smartphone market.
