    No sooner had Steve Jobs taken the wraps off the
    Apple iPad 2, than Korean manufacturer Samsung
    realized that it had a problem with its upcoming
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Lee Don-joo,
    executive vice president of Samsung's mobile
    division, in an interview with the Yonhap News Agency, said about his company's device, "We will
    have to improve the parts that are inadequate." Samsung's main concern is about the size of its
    device. Referring to Apple's sequel to its hugely
    successful iPad, Lee said, "Apple made it very thin."
    When the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was revealed at MWC last
    month, it weighed 21 ounces and was .44 inches
    thick. The Apple iPad 2, in comparison, is 21.28 ounces in weight but comes in at .35 inches thick. While no pricing information has been revealed by
    Samsung, Lee says that the company will need to
    reconsider what price it will sell the device for. The
    Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will come to market
    powered by Android 3.0. The tablet will have a
    1GHz dual-core processor under the hood and offers a 2MP front facing camera and an 8MP rear
    facing shooter that will capture video at HD 1080p.
    Unlike Samsung's earlier 7 inch Galaxy Tab, the
    newer product is designed to compete with the
    recently launched Motorola XOOM.
