New Samsung Devices – Announced and Rumoured

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.

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.

  1. I don’t consider myself a huge Samsung fan I still have LED TV, smartphone, computer and many other household appliances made by Samsung, they are just everywhere and they are making so many great devices.
    This year I am very much looking forward to Galaxy S3 but one thing I don’t like is Samsung Tab, so I prefer iPad but only for now.

      Interesting that you seem to like everything Samsung Steven, but the iPad is more your cup of tea… Why don’t you like the Samsung tablet?

      • Of course Samsung Tablet design is almost the same as iPad’s and specs are even better but Android is not so good for tablets and there are some few apps that are currently available only on iPad and I need them for work.

  2. With Android 4.0 onwards – Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich – the Operating Systems were designed primarily for tablets, rather than smart phones. There is also a much larger range of apps on the Android market than there is on the Apple market. Although myself personally, and a lot of people like you, still prefer the iPad.

      I never really thought about the number of apps each tablet could offer, but I guess it has a big influence on some peoples choice of device.
