Samsung Is Not Doing So Well in the Tablet Market, Says Report
Samsung remains optimistic with its new products despite not having done so well with its previously-released tablets.
The Korean company is setting much to store on the new Galaxy Note 10.1, which it unveiled in this year’s Mobile World Congress in Spain. The full-sized tablet is a larger and improved version of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, and also features the S Pen Stylus for input purposes. Also on display at the MWC is a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab at 7 inches, called the Galaxy Tab 2.
Samsung’s failure with its earlier tablets is attributed to its similarities with the iPad, which is also to blame for many court battles with Apple in Australia and Germany. The resemblances made it difficult for Samsung to establish its uniqueness over the iPad, and eventually forced it to redesign its products.
This move from Samsung occurred at a good time, given that it is now facing competition not only from the former models of the iPad, but more importantly, a new model coming this March. Also, it is now competing with the Amazon Kindle Fire, which has enjoyed success since its launch late last year.
To address these, Samsung has released its products in several sizes to suit the needs of each consumer.
