It seems that Samsung Galaxy Tab buyers are experiencing a huge amount of buyer's remorse, after purchasing the devices. Perhaps they've heard about the Motorola Xoom and Honeycomb.
At any rate, ITG Investment Research says that 13 percent of Galaxy Tab purchases have been returned overall, with the holiday shopping season showing a higher number, as much as 16 percent. ITG tracked point-of-sale data from the Galaxy Tab’s November debut through Jan. 15.
When you consider that the return rate for the iPad at Verizon since its debut on the carrier is just 2 percent, that's a pretty bad comparison. It's possible the multiple announcements at CES, of much better Android tablets running Honeycomb had something to do with it, but it's unclear.
