Samsung is said to be working on a number of new tablets, one of which has already been confirmed by the head of the Korean tech giant's mobile division
. That tablet, the Samsung GALAXY Note 8
, would challenge the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini
and would be priced in the $249-$299 area. Additionally, the screen is said to have resolution of 1280 x 800, which is the same resolution used on the larger Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1
Additionally, the same report says that Samsung is looking to build a 7 inch tablet that will undercut the ASUS produced Google Nexus 7
in price. That tablet is priced at $199 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, to $299 for the 32GB Wi-Fi and HSPA+ model. The word is that Sammy is looking to sell the new 7 inch slate for $149 to $199
Samsung is said to also be working on a new 10.1 inch tablet as the company aims to ship 40 million tablets this year after shipping 15 million in 2012. Samsung is trying to get the trio of new tablets out in the first half of the year before Apple introduces its new tablets.
