Because that wouldn't be the first time that he called for a Verizon iPhone that never came, we have to take with a grain of salt his comments on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. While he might prove to be correct that smartphones and laptops are taking business away from the tablets, he also says that his reading of the supply chain shows that the Korean based manufacturer is cutting production of the 7 inch Android powered tablets by 50% due to poor sales.
We recently informed you that Samsung was expecting to sell 1 million of the tablets in 2010. It seems hard to believe that the company could have miscalculated by such a wide degree considering that the product's main challenger right now is the Apple iPad and there are many potential tablet buyers out there who would prefer Android to iOS, who want two cameras on board and Adobe flash capabilities on the browser
Rumors like this can destroy a product before it even has a chance to get off the ground, so we would imagine that Samsung will be making a response denying this very soon.
