Are Samsung’s Galaxy Tablet Sales real ?

An article in CNN Money (http://tech.fortune.cnn.com/2011/09/04/samsung-on-the-run/?utm_source=pulsenews&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+fortunebrainstormtech+%28Fortune+Brainstorm+Tech%29) describes a statement by a manager at Lenovo that suggests that Samsung’s purported 1 million Galaxy Tablet units shipped to retailers generated just 20,000 units of sales. Did Samsung stuff the channel to gain reputation as a competitor to Apple ? Will the supposed dismal retail sales mean a frustrated channel that will seek to return unsold product ? Will strategies regarding the tablet hurt Samsung’s smartphone sales ? Or is this the claim of a Samsung competitor that is trying to generate their own Android based tablets ?
