Samsung has denied that 16 per cent of Galaxy Tabs were returned over the last financial quarter.

The latest move in an ongoing PR battle, Samsung released a statement on an official blog today:

“The return rate of the Galaxy Tab in the US as claimed by an North American market research firm is incorrect.

“According to Samsung Electronics Mobile Communications Business the return rate is below 2 percent.”

That North American research firm was ITG Investment Research, who claimed the ‘Tab had experienced an ‘unusually high return rate’ since its release in September.

Sales and return rates for the tablet are still unclear, however Samsung has officially shipped 2 million units to retail.
