iPad 2 Forces Samsung To Reevaluate Galaxy Tab
An anonymous reader writes “Apple’s iPad competitors are still spec-obsessed, and Apple’s next-gen iPad coupled with the same price point is forcing Samsung to rethink its tablet strategy and pricing methodology altogether. The South Korean Yonhap News Agency relays a quote from Lee Don-joo, executive VP of Samsung’s mobile division, about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1 compared to the new iPad. ‘We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate,’ Don-joo said. ‘Apple made it very thin.’ Features aside, Samsung also finds itself in a bind price-wise. The upcoming Galaxy Tab model, complete with a 10.1-inch screen and Android 3.0, was initially going to be priced higher than the current 7-inch Galaxy Tab. Apple’s iPad 2, however, is forcing Samsung to ‘think that over.’”
