Samsung have certainly had a busy few months. In 2011 they saw huge success with their Galaxy S2 Smart Phone, which is still continuing to thrive even today. They also saw the success of their largest tablet on the market – the Galaxy Tab 10.1 – and rolled out similar high quality devices with the Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Tab 8.9.
At the end of 2011, Samsung snook another two tablets into the market, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 – almost without anyone realising. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is only available in small quantities currently, but due to its initial success, it is expected to be made more widely available in the near future.
However, for a company that seems to have the best products currently in the market, they certainly haven’t held fire when it comes to announcing and releasing even more devices.
Just recently, Samsung announced their newest tablet (although it may not be their newest for long, but we’ll get to that) the Galaxy Tab 2 – a more entry level tablet similar in spec to the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus but with a slightly slower processor, a 1 GHz dual-core processor compared to the 1.2GHz dual-core processor in its 7.0 Plus counterpart, with Samsung trying to succeed in the market of cheaper electronic goods which has seen Amazon compete so successfully in recently.
Not to rest on their laurels, Samsung are also rumoured to be announcing a 10.1 inch version of their Galaxy Note (one of the biggest smart phones currently in the market, often referred to as a ‘phablet’ due to its similarities to a tablet rather than a phone) which has been reported from several sources due to Samsung accidentally releasing details about the Galaxy Note 10.1 being announced at this month’s MWC and also advertising for a young male to be seen using a ‘Galaxy Note 10.1’ device.
So, will Samsung’s new devices do as well as their previous releases? Only time will tell, but my guess is that they will.
