A report from China cites Foxconn employees as saying that they are assembling a smaller number of Apple's third-generation tablet each day; one employee was quoted as saying that after producing 150 to 180 iPads per hour, the workers at the plant sometimes can't even get 5 days of work in during a week...

I wouldnt care if they sold at 1/100 of what iPads do. As long as I still have a choice to get one, thats all thats matters to me.

I'm a guy. Car anology: the Nissan Altima was the majority of Nissan car sales last year. What would you rather have, an Altima or Maxima?

Me personally a want an Altima for the better gas milage. Some if not most guys would say the Maxima.

Sales isnt the only way to judge a product. How many of those exotic cars are sold a year vs an Altima? How may Phantoms got sold last year vs an Altima? Based on sales I guess the Altima is the better car. For me it would be cuz I also factor in repair costs. Most would pick the Phantom..

Nissan sold sold 100,000 Altimas last year...the Rolls-Royce Phantom....3,000......

sales matter in tech world. what happened to the xoom? how about the rest of the other android tablets? support for the product=sales=longer support from manufacturers bacause simply...it's selling. remember what a samsung executive said that "the best thing to survive in the market is to kill your products," and that "we want to stay competitive in the market." And with a new 5-inch, 7-inch, and 10.1-inch tablet in its portfolio, Samsung will have plenty of products to kill down the line if its stays true to Yoon's strategy.
