Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 "inadequate" compared to Apple iPad 2 says manufacturer
No sooner had Steve Jobs taken the wraps off the Apple iPad 2, than Korean manufacturer Samsung realized that it had a problem with its upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Lee Don-joo, executive vice president of Samsung's mobile division, in an interview with the Yonhap News Agency, said about his company's device, "We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate."

Samsung's main concern is about the size of its device. Referring to Apple's sequel to its hugely successful iPad, Lee said, "Apple made it very thin." When the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was revealed at MWC last month, it weighed 21 ounces and was .44 inches thick. The Apple iPad 2, in comparison, is 21.28 ounces in weight but comes in at .35 inches thick.

While no pricing information has been revealed by Samsung, Lee says that the company will need to reconsider what price it will sell the device for. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will come to market powered by Android 3.0. The tablet will have a 1GHz dual-core processor under the hood and offers a 2MP front facing camera and an 8MP rear facing shooter that will capture video at HD 1080p. Unlike Samsung's earlier 7 inch Galaxy Tab, the newer product is designed to compete with the recently launched Motorola XOOM.
