Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: Inadequate Parts

Don-joo Lee, EVP Samsung Mobile Division, via Yonhap News Agency:

We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate. Apple made it very thin.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is 10.9-mm thick. The new iPad 2 is 8.8 mm. So that’s one inadequate part.

The 10-inch was to be priced higher than the 7-inch but we will have to think that over.

Now that would be really interesting. The 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab can be had for just US$249.99 on T-Mobile, with a new two-year agreement. The total cost of ownership is $849.75, including $599.97 ($24.99 per month) and the price of the Galaxy Tab at $249.99. Not bad for a 3G-enabled tablet. If Samsung is thinking of bringing the Galaxy Tab 10.1 at a price equal to or lower than this. Wow.
