[Androidized] Galaxy Tab 10.1 Is Inadequate Compared to iPad 2

Samsung CEO has just admitted that the upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1 is inadequate compared to iPad 2, and that they will have to adjust the price downwards since they were planning on making the tablet more expensive even than the first Galaxy Tab, which started at $600. Is Samsung starting to get it?

what they mean is they have to make it cheaper as it wont sell against the ipad2 if it costs more cause of the apple fans. Its nothing to do with inadequate. I bet the camera on the galaxy will beat it and the graphics chip will be better on the galaxy.

Looked at article. Saw no quote. Left.

No CEO would say their product is straight up inferior compared to another. The quote must've been taken out of context, but we'll never know because there was no quote or context.

How about FOUR HANDRED for Wifi

But really, looks like they get it. If you want to compete with a bigger (brand) NAME then you have to go cheaper. Sad considering the Tab 10.1 is probably going to be superior in a few regards at least.

Ipad2 is $499. $800 is ridiculous.

They really twisted his words, this is what he actually said:

"We will have to improve the parts that are inadequate. Apple made it very thin."

This is different than saying it's "worse" than the iPad 2. This site just wants to hype up the iPad 2. Not surprising...

They should have called it: "iphonized" instead of "androidized"
