New Galaxy Tab may help Samsung lead non-iPad segment


Samsung Electronics, on March 23, announced two new sizes for its Galaxy Tab tablet PCs – an 8.9-inch model and a 10.1-inch model – and since Samsung has strong advantages in both global PC and telecom channels, market watchers believe the two new models should help Samsung achieve the lead in the non-iPad tablet PC market.


In comment, Digitimes Research senior analyst Luke Lin pointed out that the expanding iPad market share does not necessary mean non-iPad tablet PCs will fail.

Lin used the example of the smartphone market and pointed out that iPhone also had strong sales performance in the past, but iPhone's success did not create a significant impact toward Android-based smartphones since these devices also saw strong sales growth.
