Recently you may have read that Samsung is feeling the heat from Apple’s iPad 2 announcement. They said something along the lines of their product [Galaxy Tab 10.1] is somewhat inadequate in terms of design and price point. Samsung never gave any indication that they were going back to the drawing board to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 lighter or cheaper, until now. Sammy have spoken to a Korean news site and confirmed that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is on schedule, meaning this beast won’t have any radical new design at all as it has already passed the FCC. What this does mean is that if Samsung want to compete, or easily beat, the iPad 2 they’re going to have to lower the price. Which is the greatest news us early adopters could ever hear.

Hurry up and give us a launch date and price, Vodafone Aus!

    Well since they have said that they feel that the galaxy tab 10.1 is inadequate in terms of thickness n price, and if they are not making any changes it will probably have to be launched at an even lower price than the ipad. Cuz they are going up against the ipad with 4 things, price, thickness/weight, apples app store and the power of the apple brand. So lets just hope that means cheaper prices for us :D
