Samsung has said that it plans to develop a tablet PC in a move that is intended to exploit the rising demand generated by the iPad.
According to Business Week, Samsung, which makes the A4 processors for the iPad, is in a position to become both supplier and competitor for Apple in the tablet sector.
“We will respond,” the president of Samsung’s mobile communication division, J.K Shin, said in an interview at Mobile World Congress adding that Apple’s tablet would create a new market and demand.
“This is normal, we have to compete in the market. At the same time, they are our customer and we are the supplier of components to them.”
