The Samsung tablet has received a lot of praise. It has been revised, but many people are still unaware of what this device can do. Much of this has to do with all the competition that is out there for the Samsung tablet. The Microsoft Surface tablet is taking strong steps, while the dominance of iPad in the tablets market is known by all.
Samsung tablet vs. Apple
It would be easy to say that Samsung only has Apple to worry about, but this would be untrue. The battlefield of portable tablet PCs is actually a war between Apple and everyone else. Samsung is trying to raise out of the “everyone else” category to stand alone as the sole competitor against the Apple franchise.
So far the iPad has become the tablet of choice for the large majority of tablet PC users throughout the world. This is amazing when consumers have so many choices with Dell, HP, Blackberry, Kindle, and Toshiba. Samsung has often been clumped into this group of Android tablets that are subpar to the elite iPad, but Samsung is trying desperately to break out of this mold. This company bounced back with a 10.1 Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 2. Both devices may lure more consumers away from Apple.
New and Better Offerings
In the technology world new doesn’t always equate to better. It obviously should be main ingredient in new technology, but there are times when rushed products tend to fall short of their anticipated glory. Samsung has avoided those mistakes and focused on tablets that appear to combine features similar to two of the hottest tablet PCs on the market. The Kindle and iPad are hot and the engineers at Samsung recognized this. That is why the Galaxy Note Tab takes helps lessons in product from both of these popular devices.
It is evident that Samsung engineers where following the Apple design when they resurfaced with a thinner, lighter design with a better battery life. The front and rear facing cameras also make people recall the front and rear camera design for the iPad 2 that lead to the powerful Facetime App.
Variations of the Same Thing
When it comes to stealing ideas Samsung also copied the genius of Amazon. The Samsung tablet is actually a variation of different Galaxy tablets with subtle differences. This is the exact same thing that Amazon did with the Kindle. Right now there are Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD tablets. There is also another one called the Kindle Paper White. This can be compared to the Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy Note 10.1 that come with different storage capacity and different megapixels for the cameras. There is also a different OS between the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 2. This differences give consumers more options, but it is still all within the Samsung Tablet family.
Samsung Tablet for All Occasions
This time Samsung has made an effort to appeal to a more diverse audience. This tablet isn’t just for the home users. It can be used in school and work environments. Samsung is marketing tablets to the world.
