It is no secret that out of all the Android OEMs around, Samsung probably tops the list when it comes to churning out Android tablets. We’ve seen all sorts of tablets from the South Korean company, ranging from budget offerings, to tablets with stunning Super AMOLED displays that comes with a hefty price tag.
However it seems that despite Samsung’s best attempts, they might not be able to meet their original goal of shipping 60 million tablets before the year is out. This is according to a recent report from DigiTimes who quotes one of their sources in the supply chain. However this is hardly a doom and gloom situation.
Samsung has so far managed to ship 20 million tablets in the first half of the year, which is already a growth of 16.6% from last year. The report goes on to claim that if Samsung wants to try and meet the 60 million goal mark, they will most likely be offering up promotions to entice customers to purchase their tablets, such as price cuts for example.
We suppose we’ll have to wait until the end of the year to see if Samsung can really meet their goals, but given that it’s taken them half a year to ship 20 million tablets, hitting the 60 million mark certainly does sound like a stretch, but what do you guys think?
