Samsung, a well known name today in tablet world, thanks to its Galaxy Tab series, is rumored to have plans for cheap tablets. The tablets are in 7-inch, 8-inch and 10-inch range. The price for 7-inch tablets is expected to be between $149 – $199. While 8-inch tablet will be around $249-$299. No news on the 10-inch price yet.
The 7-inch and 10.1-inch tablets are both set to appear in retail channels in the first half of 2013 to avoid directly competing against any Apple devices that are estimated to come out in the second half.
Samsung is squarely aiming for marketshare rather than “just” profit margin with reports suggesting that it intends to sell 40 million units in 2013, nearly three times the estimated amount of tablets it sold last year.
