Exec says Samsung not doing well in tablet market, hopes Galaxy Note will turn the table



Samsung’s product strategy executive Hankil Yoon confessed that their range of Galaxy Tab devices aren’t doing that well. The statement came at a media roundtable at Mobile World Congress where Yoon blurted out the following.

Honestly, we’re not doing very well in the tablet market.

However, to combat the dismal sales, he revealed Samsung is banking on the Galaxy Note series, which consists of a 5.3-inch Galaxy Note “phablet” and Galaxy Note 10.1 that was announced today. The Galaxy Note series brings the S-Pen functionality that according to Yoon, helps Samsung to differentiate its offerings from the others.

      So true.

      Samsung’s biggest problem is that they don’t have the ecosystem or products to keep loyal customers in the market.

      you buy a galaxy s2 and a month later a better Samsung phone comes out.

      All the defects from Galaxy S1 exist in Galaxy S2 and Samsung does nothing to fix them but rather flop out more crappy phones to get peoples attention.

      Galaxy Tab 2 looks pretty much identical to first Tab and even the Specs are the same apart from slightly higher resolution.


      I buy an iPhone and i am guaranteed to be up to date for a least a year before new iPhone comes.

      This is were Apple is smart.

      Small amount of products but focused completely on their design, usability & OS = great product and user experience.
