The Samsung Galaxy Tab also got a mention from Shin. Speaking of the 7 inch model due later this year, he spoke of the race to get a decent 4G system into the firm’s slate. Rather than a full successor, it will be a refined version of the Tabs that have gone before.
“The race for 4G (fourth-generation) has already started,” J.K. Shin said.
“4G transition is inevitable particularly for tablets because it requires faster download speeds than smartphones to handle bigger volume content.”
