Killed off TouchPad outselling Galaxy Tab

NPD: Samsung Galaxy Tab sales low enough that HP outsold it:

HP, not Samsung, was the ruler of non-iPad tablets in the US for the first ten months of the year, the NPD Group said in a new study. With just 1.2 million tablets sold at retail across every company outside of Apple, HP was the leader in the country at 17 percent, or 204,000, sold between its launch and October.


Samsung was close, but at 16 percent (192,000) faced a symbolic embarrassment. If accurate, it suggested the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and other models couldn’t outsell an HP tablet being cleared out for a lack of initial interest.
