Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 found lacking by Samsung compared to iPad 2, price cut may be coming

There is no doubt that when Steve Jobs pulled the iPad 2 out on strange there were a lot of tablet markers that had to step back and reconsider how they were positioning their own offerings in the market. One of those firms that is doing some reconsidering is Samsung with its Galaxy Tab 10.1. Samsung is feeling a bit inadequate against the iPad 2.

Engadget reports that Samsung VP Lee Don-Joo has noted that Samsung is looking at the tablet and reaching to "improve the parts that are inadequate." The exec doesn't offer any hints on exactly what parts the company thinks are inadequate compared to the iPad 2. Lee does note that the iPad 2 is very thin.

That would seem to hint that perhaps we would see future versions of the Tab 10.1 with a more svelte profile than the tablet currently has. The most important change that may be coming to the tablet is a price cut. If the price of the Tab 10.1 was significantly less than the iPad 2 then I think a lot of us could possibly over look things that might not be perfect.

    Samsung would be making adjustments like this against any competitor in the market. Just because it’s Apple this time it’s big news as if the iPad 2 has great specs other than being thinner. . . it doesn’t.

    Galaxy Tab 10.1 inadequate

    the Samsung VP was referring exclusively to the fact that the ipad is slight thinner (0.34″) then the 10.1 (0.43″). This comment got blown way way way out of proportion by articles like this 😛

    There are aspects of the galaxy 10.1 that are better then the ipad 2 (higher resolution, bigger screen to name the two most important to myself). Both have their strong points and are going to be the two best tablets around, should be a good fight 😀
