The arrival of the Apple iPad 2 tablet nearly three weeks after the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch will not change the Korean company's tablet strategy overall.

Accoriding to AllthingsD, Lee Don-Joo, the vice president of Samsung in charge of Mobile, confirmed that the company "will continue to make every effort to provide the most powerful, well-designed and productive mobile device to customers".

This is in stark contrast with earlier reports that Don-Joo would have to redesign the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10-inch tablet after finding out how thin the iPad 2 is and reportedly saying that the device would have to be redesigned to get rid of its "inadequacies".

A change in the price strategy is likely to be on the menu as well as Galaxy Tab will have to compete not only with the iPad 2 but also with the 7-inch Galaxy Tab plus a number of Android based large format tablets (like the Motorola XOOM) as well as the HP TouchPad.

Samsung produces most of the components on the Galaxy Tab - the screen, the system on chip, the memory and the Flash storage - which means that it does have the ability to cut the price of its tablets further than Apple.
