It seems that Samsung hasn’t changed its plans for the successor to the Galaxy Tab, which super-sizes the display from the original 7 inch to a 10.1 inch screen.
Last week, various reports across the net quoted Samsung’s Vice President of Mobile, Lee Don-Joo, saying that in light of the iPad 2’s thinner and slicker build, the company would have to re-evaluate the “inadequacies” of the Galaxy Tab 10.1’s design.
Now it seems that Lee Don-Joo has done a U-turn from his initial, and certainly very surprising, admission.
According to a report on Techeye.net, Samsung has confirmed that there will definitely be no re-jigging of its 10 inch model, and that the Tab 10.1 will launch “as scheduled”.
However, it seems that a price cut could be on the cards when it comes to the Tab 10.1. That would certainly be the obvious way of keeping the slate competitive with the iPad 2.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is expected to be out this summer.
