Samsung Hints at Lowering Galaxy Tab Prices Lower than $199 [10.1 and 8.9 too?]

In an interview given with the Wall Street Journal today (May 30, 2011,) JK Shin, head of Samsung Mobile Communications, hinted at several important points, the most immediately important of which being that although they'd very recently reduced the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (original 7-inch) to $199 - and that the "company would be willing to lower prices further in order to gain more share." This comes amid news that Samsung did indeed have "plans to deepen its relationship with Google Inc. by depending on the U.S. company's Android mobile device software to run future versions of its tablets."

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 getting Android 2.3.3 update in Italy

The Samsung Galaxy Tab is a nice little tablet by most standards. The device has a nice screen even if that screen might be too small for some users that are more apt to want the larger 10-inch screen that are on tablets like the iPad and others. One of the biggest complaints of some users about the Tab is the older version of the Android OS that the machine uses. The Tab shipped with Android 2.2 onboard. I am sure that a lot of users were hoping that the Android 3.0 update make it to the Galaxy Tab soon. Before the 3.0 update comes, Samsung has upped the OS to Gingerbread.

The Amazon Tablet is a rumor that refuses to die

DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwan based Quanta Computer has received a monthly order from Amazon for up to 800,000 tablet PCs at peak production. The tablets are expected to ship in the second half of 2011, making an Amazon Tablet ready to hit the market just in time for the holidays. Quanta is no stranger to tablets, being an OEM partner for both RIM and Sony. So, is it a credible rumor? Well, the touch screens are expected to be made by E Ink Holdings, which provides the screens on the Kindle. They use an electrophoretic display supported by Fringe Field Switching technology, which is just a fancy way of saying they've got great color gamut and bright, bold colors, according to Wiki.

WiFi Only Galaxy Tab 7″ hardware differs from 3G model

This looks like nothing but bad news, according to some pretty unhappy users over at the XDA forums it looks like the WiFi-Only Samsung Galaxy Tab (original 7" model) has been downgraded on more than just a few things. It is much less than just a Galaxy Tab with no 3G radio inside. This has nothing to do with the upcoming 8.9" or 10" but it is disturbing news either way. Users are reporting it to have different hardware inside all together, with Samsung never mentioning this that is not cool. Weaker GPU that performs much worse in gaming, video playback taking a huge hit with that as well, even lack of HDMI features and more.
