Samsung to reconsider Galaxy Tab pricing after iPad 2 unveil?

The company says it plans to improve “inadequate parts” and regroup on the pricing of its upcoming Galaxy Tabs.

Apple’s products may not be revolutionary or the most high-end, but it’s extremely competitive pricing, penchant for eye pleasing designs and high brand value makes competitors sit up and notice whenever the company unveils new products in the market. This invariably results in better choices for consumers from competing companies as Apple’s precision-sharp strategy leaves little room for slacking.

Apple unveiled the iPad 2 on March 2nd, and while the hardware was nothing to rave about, it became the talk of the town, with news, previews and hands-on splashing all over the Internet. Such a response has at least made Samsung to take account of their own goods, with the South Korean company saying that it will reconsider pricing of its upcoming 10.1″ and 7″ tablets and improve upon any inadequate parts.

“We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate,” Lee Don-joo, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile division, told Yonhap News Agency. “Apple made it very thin.”

The current 7″ Galaxy Tab was priced at $900, and Samsung had said the new 10.1″ model was supposed to be priced higher than that. The highest WiFi+3G iPad 2 model cost $829. It would be only wise for Samsung to reconsider their pricing.
