Samsung to Rethink New Tablets After Seeing iPad 2

Samsung says it will have to make improvements to its upcoming tablets after seeing Apple unveil the iPad 2 this week, according to yonhapnews.

Lee Don-joo, executive vice president of Samsung's mobile division, said that Apple has presented new challenges for the South Korean company with a thinner mobile gadget that is priced the same as its predecessor.

The iPad is 8.8-millimeters thick, significantly thinner than Samsung's latest 10.9-millimeter tablet announced last month.


"We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate," Lee told Yonhap News Agency. "Apple made it very thin."

Samsung also notes it will have to reconsider pricing of its future tablets. The 7-inch Galaxy Tab was priced at almost $900; whereas, the iPad starts at $499 and tops out at $829.

"The 10-inch (tablet) was to be priced higher than the 7-inch (tablet) but we will have to think that over," Lee said.

you could have the fastest car in the world, but if you have shitty tires, it doesn't mean anything. same goes for hardware with software. in this sense, the xoom is a faster car than the ipad, but with the android operating system, it's got the shittiest tires around.
