Samsung Wonders Aloud About Changing New Galaxy Tab

Posted: 02:17PM

Apple's recent unveiling of the iPad 2 is sure to have many competitors thinking things over about its own tablets. One such company is Samsung, and rather than keep things internally, it has talked openly about what it could do to change the upcoming 10.1" Galaxy Tab. The original 7" Galaxy Tab came in at just under 12mm thick, beating the original iPad, and the 10.1" model will be the same as the already released 7". However, the iPad 2 comes in at a mere 8.8mm thick which bests the Galaxy Tab by about 3mm (and the original iPad by 4mm). Lee Don-joo, executive VP of Samsung's mobile division, has wondered aloud publicly about what it can do to change the Galaxy Tab and address the "inadequate" parts. One thing that could be addressed, aside from the thickness, is the price of the Galaxy Tab. The 7" model is far cheaper than the iPad on a contract, but off-contract it is much more expensive. The 10.1" model could see a price reduction to better compete with the iPad 2, but that would more than likely mean Samsung would not turn a profit on it. It looks like time will tell what Samsung, and perhaps others, can do to compete with the iPad 2.

I dont think anyone should be too fussed about 3mm difference, I rekon price is much more important.
