Despite reports that Apple’s iPad 2 reveal had given the company pause for thought, Samsung says the Galaxy Tab 10.1 launch will go ahead as planned.
Translated comments attributed to Samsung’s Lee Don-joo suggested that the company had been taken aback by the iPad 2‘s slim chassis and aggressive pricing, prompting a resolve to “improve the parts that are inadequate” on the forthcoming Android 3.0 tablet. Many took this to mean that the launch of the device would be delayed to allow for modifications.
However, the South Korean manufacturer has moved to reject these suggestions, confirming that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 would be launched on the planned (though as yet unspecified) date.
Samsung’s executive vice president Lee Don-Joo confirmed that the company would “continue to make every effort to provide the most powerful, well-designed and productive mobile device to customers,” though this will not involve a dramatic reshaping of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Now we just need to know when the device will arrive.
