$100 for a better screen, better camera, and a more tablet friendly OS.

This article has taken the quote way out of context (which is probably why it was omitted)

It seems that Samsung is really concerned about the thickness. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is 2mm thicker, and apparently that's a big deal.

I'm guessing Samsung was probably going to market it as the thinnest tablet on the market and price it at $1000.


If thats the case then good for Apple! These things cost less than $200 to make.

By better screen I assume you mean resolution. Something to consider is how well Android tablets work in portrait mode, something I havent seen demonstrated too much, if at all. I've seen many comments like this in regards to the Xoom:

Quote:

Screen Quality

Pogue (NYT): The Xoom’s screen has slightly higher resolution than the iPad’s, and it gives the tablet a slightly different shape — more like a business envelope than a greeting-card envelope. The screen shape is a better match for hi-definition videos, but worse for photos and maps.

Mossberg (WSJ): Though it works fine in portrait, or vertical, mode, the Xoom is mainly designed as a landscape, or horizontal, device. The screen is long and narrow, proportioned to best fit widescreen video. The HD screen boasts a resolution of 1280 by 800, versus 1024 by 768 for the iPad

Engadget: Slightly larger than the iPad's 9.7-inch screen, and higher resolution (1280 x 800 to Apple's 1024 x 768). The aspect ratio is substantially different as well, meaning that the Xoom feels a lot longer (or taller) than the iPad. In general, we felt portrait use was slightly uncomfortable given the size, but not in any way a dealbreaker. Though the screen does look nice, pixel density seemed to suffer -- a situation that was particularly evident when using the Google Books application.

Wired: The Xoom has a 10.1-inch screen (measuring 8.5 by 5.25 inches), and it’s as bright and sharp as any other high-end tablet. We did notice a slightly discolored band running down the edge of the screen on one side, but since we can’t compare it to other Xooms yet, we don’t know if this is a problem with our review unit or a more general manufacturing defect.

TechCrunch: The glossy 10-incher is wonderfully responsive and 1280×800 resolution allows for a great deal of living detail in the interface, icons, and during media playback. Strangely, the resolution didn’t play well with some photos, including photos taken with the Xoom’s own camera; they appeared fuzzy when you’d expect sharpness.

iSmashPhone Verdict: The reviewers agree higher-resolution screen looks great, and is responsive. Engadget did say that the true widescreen aspect ratio made portrait mode a bit awkward though. Most agreed that photos looked worse than on the iPad.

Better camera specs are simply for bragging rights at this point, although the iPad 2's camera hasn't been reviewed yet. And more friendly tablet OS is of course your opinion. It certainly doesn't LOOK more user friendly in the commercials and other videos I've seen, but hey, that's just my opinion as well.

After reading the article and not seeing an actual quote from Samsung's CEO, I think the author is just bashing the Galaxy Tab.

I'm not a big fan of Apple products, but Galaxy tab is not suitable at all. It's 7 inch screen without a nice design, with low specs with a higher price than iPad.

Maybe we should not compare everything to iPad, but if I have to choose between iPad and Galaxy Tab I would choose iPad, because it have 10 inch and it is cheaper. The first reason I dislike Apple is because their very high profit margin and expensive products.
