Really how hard is it to read a huge letters on a box. Either it says IPAD or it says GALAXY TAB.
And what about all the other tablets that got returned coz stupid people dont see all the advertisements for those tablets but are bombarded with ads for the iPad and they returned them too.
Just coz Apple hate the makers of their products doesn't mean all returned android tablets are from Samsung. I bet most are probably Asus or some other brand I cant think of atm as there is little to no advertisements on those ones.
Apple just have more money to waste and advertise everywhere so its a common name but when you go to the shop to buy a tablet you realise there are many all with different features and specs and its not that easy to buy the right one for you but as you've been bombarded with all the info on the iPad thats what you end up getting.
I bet if Samsung put as much advertising into the Galaxy Tab then you would get that instead as it is actually a better tablet.

Retailers sometimes put similar products together so customers may mistaken a generic brand instead of a big brand. They make a lot more off the generic brands. If you go to the grocery store, you can see this. They'll make the box same color and very similar design. Someone in a hurry can mistakenly grab the generic brand that was strategically placed next to the big brand they are copying.

Both are white boxes with a tablet on the cover. Yeah, the words are different but we've been conditioned to do everything based on a picture. Go to a restaurant -- same thing.
If Best Buy has bothered to mention it to Samsung, it means the numbers have to be in the hundreds -- minimum -- or it wouldn't be worth it to them.

Whether online or in store, when I shop I tend to read the box carefully to make sure I'm buying exactly what I want. Especially with Xbox and ps3 having a lot of the same games, I read the product description and/or box three times over to make sure I'm getting the Xbox version and not the ps3 one to avoid having to return anything.
Pictures help, but words need to be read.
As for online shopping, well I never ruled out that it's purely the customer's fault. It truly is. Words are put on the product description for a purpose, but people like to look at pictures and purchase hastily.

thats because people see a big black rectangle with a screen and assume its an ipad.
I had a lady walk into staples next to me, she walks up to a 17 inch laptop and asks the associate, "this isnt a netbook is it?"
When it comes to tech, for some reason, people have no inclination to actually learn about a product before they buy it. It has nothing to do with the physical appearance (there are dozens of tablets that look like the ipad, in apple's logic) but people see something remotely similar and pretend its the same thing when they buy, then realize its not and blame the store/the company for their stupidity.

The Box doesn't say iPad..its not an iPad. That is all for now.
