At the CTIA media function, Samsung announced that in the 8th June 2011, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was to be released but did not specify if was global. Even though if it is a global launch, better suggestion at this moment is that to wait for the 8.9 candidate. This won’t be a problem as the Samsung distributors of the Middle East disclosed that the Tab 8.9 shall be on the shelves in Q2.
That’s not all the information that was disclosed during the meeting, they also mentioned that its best to tell the public that it will arrive in Q2 rather than the exact date which is 15th June 2011. The prices are to be also discussed after a phone call to the New York Samsung officials to check what is to be told to the rest of the distributors. Prices to follow on Saturday.
CTIA has been long awaited, many tablets and devices are expected to be announced at this occasion and one of those moments have arrived. The official prices and release dates have been told by one of Samsung presenters. The difference price of $100 is not so bad where the 16GB Wi-Fi Tablet is recommended to be sold at $499 while the 32GB Wi-Fi Tablet is supposed to be sold for $599.
Not only the 10.0 Tablet details were informed, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 prices were told to the media. Priced at $469 16GB and $569 for 32GB. The confirmed details aren’t so bad but the prices are rumored to drop as are some of the Tablets on American networks.
Nokia was at the Mobile World Congress which was was held a month ago, this time, Nokia shall be announcing Symbian devices at the event but the devices are exclusive to US carriers. It was when Nokia said “We promised to sell millions more Symbian devices. Join us as we spotlight our latest solution for U.S. consumers”, it occurred to me that Windows Devices are once again classified as concept.
It’s best to first perfect the software probably under the table and then announce the deal so that customers can see that this new Windows Phone is really worth it, no glitches!
