Samsung is set to drop the price of the Galaxy Tab in Australia to $699; however local management cannot confirm that the current model can be upgraded to the new Google Android Honeycomb. The launch price was $899.

Speaking at the Australian preview of their new mobile product range, Samsung said that will start selling their new 10.1 Galaxy tablet in Australia “early” in the second quarter which could mean April.

At a news conference held in conjunction with the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Samsung also confirmed the launch of a new Galaxy S 2.

Ironically the Korean Company did not make any announcements regarding devices that would run Windows Phone 7, Microsoft’s mobile operating system which is set to be distributed by Nokia.

Josh Delgardo Operations Manager for Samsung’s Mobile Communications Division in Australia said “We are hoping to have our new Galaxy Tablet’s in the Australian market by the second quarter. We are also moving very quickly to lower the price of our current Galaxy Tab model to $699 however the carriers will set their pricing depending on what package they are selling”.

He also said that Vodafone will be selling both the new Samsung Galaxy S 2 and the new 10.1 inch tablet.

The new Galaxy Tab 10.1 will have a screen as big as its namesake, 10.1 inches. Unlike the first Tab and Apple’s iPad, the backside is textured so it won’t slide off a desk or airplane tray. Like the iPad, it has a circular metal plate on the backside featuring Samsung’s logo.

Samsung did not give out pricing for the new models. Samsung said it has shipped two million Galaxy Tabs since November. That’s a shipment number, not the number of Tabs sold.

 

 

At the Unpacked event in Barcelona Samsung who have traditionally played in the consumer electronics market said that they are set to make a big push into the enterprise market in a move that could hurt Blackberry and RIM.

Running Android Honeycomb (also known as Android 3.0), the latest Tab sports a 10.1-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. The Tab 10.1 joins Samsung’s arsenal of Android devices including the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab and the new Galaxy S II Smartphone, which was also announced at today’s event in Sydney.
