Best Buy corrects a report on the WSJ about a 50% notebook sales decline because of Tablets.

A report from the WSJ that carried a statement of Best Buy CEO saying that Tablets cut into notebook sales by 50% are apparently wrong. I mentioned the report yesterday in a report on Black Friday 2010 Tablet Deal predictions. Best Buy issued a statement saying that notebook and netbook sales are grossly exaggerated. So what happened? Did Best Buy CEO Brian J. Dunn just use some exaggerated language to drive home the point that iPad sales are a sizealbe or did the WSJ just heard it wrong.

Best Buy says now that tablet sales are being an incremental opportunity and that computers will remain a very popular gift this holiday because of the very distinct and desirable benefits they offer consumers.
