    Samsung Galaxy Tab sales 'quite small'

    'The Samsung Galaxy Tab, hyped by the consumer electronics maker and many others as the biggest competitor to Apple's iPad thus far, hasn't sold as many units as previously reported.

    Shortly after the start of the year, Samsung reported that it had sold 2 million Galaxy Tabs since the device's first arrived in stores in November.

    But that number, or the 1 million Samsung said it had sold as of December, wasn't accurate, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

    During Samsung's fourth-quarter earnings call Friday, Samsung executive Lee Young-hee said the numbers weren't actual sales, but rather, the number of tablets shipped to retailers worldwide, the Journal reported.

    Young-hee described the sales of the Galaxy Tab in the call as “quite small,” declining to reveal a specific number, the report said.

    The executive said Samsung was “quite optimistic” about the Galaxy Tab's sales this year, but he declined to make any predictions, adding, “As you know, the tablet is relatively new, and we need to see how the market develops before we give any firm numbers,” according to the Journal.'
