Honeycomb, Galaxy Tab & the 7-inch stumble

Honeycomb, Galaxy Tab & the 7-inch stumble

It's hardly been a good week for Samsung. Not only has the company been forced to backtrack on its Galaxy Tab sales figures, admitting it was counting vendor shipments rather than end-user purchases, but return rates are also said to be far higher than expected.
