In a seven-quarter period starting in 2010 and ending in the middle of this year, Samsung sold 1.4 million units of its Galaxy tablet series in the United States. That earned the company $644 million in revenue.

How did the iPad do in the U.S. during the same time frame? Apple sold 29.7 million units to take in $14.8 billion in revenue. AllThingsD boiled those numbers down pretty concisely:

Put another way, Samsung sold fewer tablets over that entire seven-quarter period than Apple did in its worst quarter. Its revenue over that time period was less than 5 percent of what Apple generated.
