Samsung said to be working on a 7 inch tablet cheaper than the Google Nexus 7

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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..
