Speculation has started that Samsung is working on a 7 inch tablet that at $149, will undercut the Google Nexus 7 in price; besides the 7 inch tablet, Samsung is working on an 8 inch model which was confirmed by the head of its mobile division, and is also working on an entry level 10.1 inch tablet as the Korean tech giant aims to sell 40 million tablets in 2013...

how are they rushing? samsung hasn't released a small sized tablet for nearly a year now
if anything, htc is the one that is rushing

HTC always rushes everything out in the beginning of the year then remain stagnant until the holiday season crops up.

Maybe not rushing, but for affordable tablets we have N7 and many other options. I don't understand why Sammy wants to join that crowded part of market.
I think SS should make high specced tablets and compete directly with Apple: Android users will have more choice, SS will have more profits and Apple will hve more headaches.

well thats what they call competition...they wont let one company to monopolize the 7inch tablet..but hopefully Samsung make a good choice of processor for their 7inch tablet.

Please tell Apple to rush out a phone bigger than 4.5 inches.

Depends on what chipset they use. Remember: they create their own Exynos chipsets that could be used in their tablet line. Anything that is done in-house is normally cheaper than buying a chipset from another company. Samsung has the potential of making its own chipsets, displays, and so on.

come on sammy. you already have 4.8, 5.5, 8, 10 inch devices.
whats the use of 7" one now??
maybe its the matter of advertisement, isn't it?

They already have 7" devices. In fact, it's the first size Samsung came out with on tablets.

Oh yea because it will not have a NOKIA or LUMIA written over it but i am happy as that keeps me away from using Vista8 :D

sammy is making different tablets to put a stamp called "kick ass" in every category of the market.
if they can produce a better tablet than the nexus 7 at a better price point. thanks sammy. jeez some of your guys comments makes absolute no sense. samsung's competitive nature helps the consumer (us). why the complaints?

I'm not complaining about competitive tablets as long as they stop making cheap looking plastic wafers... I have no problem with the insides to their products BUT the poor design is a huge turnoff and I'm not sure why we ( the consumer) reward them for it. In my eyes they are turning into the cheap version of Apple..when I look at their products no matter which one they all look about the same from note one to note two to s3 to the rumored pics of the s4... Talk about milking an already shotty design Sammy.. Even their Korean cousin LG makes better designs

hehehe mines the opposite..i want the processor to be superior but let the outside appearance be average joe

therefore I conclude, Samsung is the top copy cat!!
they'll make an iPad mini competitor... so they admit that there's a market for the 8" iPad
they'll make a new 7" to compete with there nexus 7...
what a disgrace for a company..

So price wars have just begun. Samsung has the capacity because of Vertical integration.
