Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1: Price Revised Thanks To iPad 2

When it comes to Apple and their devices, they are pretty much always used as a benchmark for price, specs and everything else. Just think of the Apple iPhones and what has happened through the years, especially from the iPhone 3G through to the iPhone 4. More and more smartphones are being seen with similar capabilities from various manufacturers but do they do things as well as Apple?

With all that in mind, Samsung are reconsidering the price stamp that they have on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 more than likely because of the price of the iPad 2. Engadget’s Vlad Savov is reporting on some comments made by Sammy’s VP Lee Don-Joo who says that there will need to be some improvements on “parts that are inadequate”.

The VP failed to mention what those parts were but did note that Apple have been able to make the iPad 2 very thin. As we already know, Samsung has made their new tablet larger than their fairly successful Samsung Galaxy Tab which was a 7” model but hadn’t mentioned the actual price that they were going to use.

Going on the original Samsung prices for the Galaxy Tab, it was almost $900 off contract as told by YonhapNews whilst the iPad 2 comes in at a decent price of $499 as per the image below and the most expensive one being $829.

What do you think Samsung are going to do here? Do you think they will make their device cheaper than the iPad? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section beneath.
