Samsung: "Honestly, We're Not Doing Very Well In the Tablet Market"

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Despite having a monstrously large range of tablets on offer, Samsung has never quite captured the market in the way it would like to. Its sales clearly lag well behind the iPad in the UK and the Kindle Fire in the US — and it seems they're happy to admit it.

Speaking to CNET at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Hankil Yoon, a product strategy executive for Samsung, said "Honestly, we're not doing very well in the tablet market." That is some straight talking, Hankil. I like it.

Still, that pragmatism isn't having much of an effect on Samsung's tablet strategy, which still appears to rely on churning out as many new tablets as possible. Oh well. [CNET]
