Samsung Galaxy Tab Having A 16 Percent Return Rate?

Samsung Galaxy Tab

It is hard to argue with a tablet computer that starts at $299, but there may be some problems.  A few days ago Samsung touted moving about 2 million Galaxy Tabs at the end of 2010.  Sounds good right?  Well, ITG Investment Research tracked the point-of-sale info of about 6,000 retail stores in the US from November to January 15th and is finding a 16 percent return rate.  Sure this is an estimate, but even if they are off by 2 percent that number is too large.  I personally don't have a Samsung Galaxy Tab so I can't speak to the gadget myself.  Any feedback from Galaxy Tab owners appreciated.

    Update from Samsung – “The return rate of the Galaxy Tab in the US as claimed by an North American market research firm is incorrect. According to Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Business the return rate is below 2 percent.”
