There was a short period of time over the last few days where everyone thought Samsung were going to delay their Honeycomb-based, 10.1-inch tablet. But fear not my dear readers, Samsung are not scared of the iPad 2 and their tablet will ship as expected.

"We will continue to make every effort to provide the most powerful, well-designed and productive mobile device to customers," Executive Vice President Lee Don-Joo is quoted by Yonhap as saying. Samsung are being very mum about the release date, but it can't be overlooked that Apple is making it hard for everyone else trying to release tablets.

 

But this is how it happens when Apple are able to control everything from proprietary hardware, design, marketing, retail, wholesale all the way to getting it into your hands. Samsung obviously source parts from a bunch of different places and don't have the same control Apple do. Apple are therefore able to bend their price a bit and this will most likely be Samsung's biggest hurdle.
