In case you – at least once – thought that Samsung makes their devices just to have a leg up over Apple, we guess you were right. The company themselves seem to be admitting that. Let us try and explain that in a more convincing manner.
Once you see the updated Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, you will have a feeling that the device has cut down the size keeping the Apple market share in mind.
Yes indeed, Samsung Mobile executive Omar Khan has been quoted as saying that the updated Tab 10.1 has been made thinner so as to beat Apple in their own game.
Khan has reportedly told AllThingsD that the technology to make the device thinner was being developed, but with the arrival of the iPad2, the whole process had to be accelerated.
That explains why the new model is 8.6mm thick – that is 0.2mm thinner than the iPad 2. The device is, in fact, 2.3mm thinner than the model Samsung had showcased at Barcelona when the Mobile World Congress was underway a few days ago.
Nothing much has been shared as to how the thinning has been effectively undertaken.
But market demand has sure made Samsung go for such a move – and see what a charmer they brought to the CTIA podium.
However, the model will take some time before it actually hits retail. Are you among those waiting to play with the down sized tablet? Tell us why!
