Samsung Delays Galaxy Tab 2 Release

If you’re interested in buying a new Android tablet, you might have known that Samsung was planning on releasing a pair of tablets last month.
The tablet was the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, a device that was going to be made available in a 7-inch model as well as a 10.1-inch model. The original plan was to have a limited release last month, followed by a more wide spread launch.

Well, it would seem that the launch of these devices have been delayed by at least a month. The new time lines show that neither device will launch prior to the end of the April. The official word from the Korean company regarding the reason for the delay is that both Google and Samsung need more time to work on the software. Both devices are expected to run on Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0 but to ensure that there are no compatibility issues between the hardware and the open source operating system, more testing is required.

It is understandable for companies to be cautious about the launch of their devices, but it is always a fine balancing act. On one hand, they need to get the devices out as quick as possible to ensure that they have a viable alternative to other tablets on the market, but launching a device to quickly, only to find bugs later can result in additional time and cost required to resolve the issues.
