Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch unaffected by iPad 2
Shipping plans for Galaxy Tab 10.1 unchanged, but will the iPad 2 drag down the launch price?
In spite of some troubling rumblings out of Samsung HQ in the wake of the iPad 2 on Friday, Samsung are reportedly not sticking the upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1 on a crash diet to take on Apple's new "dramatically thin" iOS tablet.
The rumours that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was to go under the knife for some last minute fat-trimming was stirred by a quote allegedly from Lee Don-Joo, the executive vice president of Samsung's mobile division. Speaking on the Galaxy Tab 10.1's ability to compete with the iPad 2, Don-Joo said: "We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate... Apple made [the iPad 2] very thin."
