Samsung’s Considering Lowering the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Price
Hardware wise, the iPad 2 sports similar specs to other high-end Android tablets (such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1) expected to enter the market shortly. The main differences between the iPad 2 and other Android tablets are thinness, price, and number of tablet focused apps. While Samsung can’t directly change the amount of Android apps that are specifically designed for use on a tablet or change the thinness of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, since it’s already in production, it can however, change the price.
According to the executive vice president of Samsung, Lee Don-joo, “The 10-inch (tablet) was to be priced higher than the 7-inch (tablet) but we will have to think that over.”
Essentially, a higher priced tablet such as the Galaxy Tab 10.1 would have a hard time surviving in a market where the iPad 2 exists with similar specs at a much lower price point. Samsung has yet to announce any pricing information regarding the Galaxy Tab 10.1, so we won’t know exactly by how much they cut the price down, if at all.
