The iPad was only announced two days ago, but already it has the competition rethinking their devices.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]”We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate,” Lee Don-joo, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile division, told Yonhap News Agency. “Apple made it very thin.”
Currently, the seven-inch Galaxy Tab is listed on AT&T’s Web site for $549. The iPad 2 starts at $499 for the Wi-Fi version and $629 for the 3G model. But pricing is cause for concern when Samsung releases a larger screen model.
“The 10-inch (tablet) was to be priced higher than the 7-inch (tablet) but we will have to think that over,” said Lee.
Samsung may not be the only iPad competitor that will need to rethink pricing and design elements of their tablets. It’s expected that many of the pre-announced tablets will be available in the next few months.
