Samsung pinning its tablet hopes on Galaxy Note

headline3 Samsung pinning its tablet hopes on Galaxy Note

“Honestly, we’re not doing very well in the tablet market.” That was one Samsung executive’s candid take on his company’s recent misfortune. Product Strategy Executive Hankil Yoon told media gathered for a roundtable at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line of tablets has fallen flat. But Yoon and Samsung aren’t ready to throw in the towel – they’re confident the recently launched 5.3-inch Galaxy Note and its just-announced 10-inch brother are the shot in the arm Samsung needs to succeed in a market dominated by Apple and Amazon.

According to Yoon, the Notes will succeed where the Tabs failed because of their novel S-Pen stylus. “Even if the design is similar, how you use the [Note] is totally different,” Yoon said. As for criticism that Samsung’s 5.3-inch phablet is awkwardly sized, Yoon told listeners that it’s just a matter of getting used to it: “One I used [the galaxy Note], the Galaxy S II looks too small. I don’t want to go back to any other smartphone or tablet.”
