Samsung had recently unveiled the Galaxy Tab 10.1 2014 edition at IFA 2013, and while we’re sure Samsung is hoping to sell as many units as they possibly can, reports have suggested that Samsung does not expect the tablet to be a huge success. According to a report from DigiTimes, they claim that Samsung is expected to only sell about half a million units per month. The reason behind it is because 10.1” tablets are starting to lose their popularity to smaller tablets, such as those of the 7” variety, and in the case of Apple’s iPad, the 9.7” tablet is starting to lose ground to its smaller 7.9” sibling, the iPad mini.
Given that this is a brand new device from Samsung, we’re not sure what’s with the pessimism, or why even bother if they weren’t planning on selling that many tablets to begin with, but then again DigiTimes’ track record when it comes to reporting such news is a bit spotty at best. In any case what do you guys think? Do you agree that smaller sized tablets are starting to become more popular? Would you prefer the Nexus 7 or Nexus 10, hardware specifications aside and just taking its size into consideration?
