Funny Samsung sales numbers and the analysts who reported them


By

And not ha-ha funny. Some new internal Samsung documents came to light in the whole Apple-Samsung legal grudge match. The documents reveal sales figures that grossly overstate sales of devices and seriously call into question the ethics of so-called industry analysts.

Daniel Eran Dilger for Apple Insider pulls out the sharp sticks:

It also calls into question why IDC, Gartner and Strategy Analytics seem to carefully avoid mention of U.S. market share figures that would provide valuable insight into the domestic market for mobile apps and accessories and illuminate the threat iPads might pose to conventional PCs.

It certainly appears that these market researchers, just like every Android tablet manufacturer, doesn't want to talk about specifics because the facts have nothing good to say about the Android or Windows platforms that indirectly pay the bills of said market research groups.
