, Apple’s biggest competitor in the market for iPad sized tablet computers, is updating its line to include a feature that lets a tablet act as a universal remote control for an entertainment center.
The storage space on the new Galaxy Tab 2 will also be expandable with small memory cards.
‘s competitors are experimenting with different tablet sizes and features as they try to come up with a way to challenge the iPad’s commanding lead in sales.
This week revealed a tablet with a 13 inch screen, essentially putting a laptop sized screen in a tablet.
One way could be introduce a model with a radically different screen size, like Toshiba this week.
IPads accounted for nearly 60 percent of the tablet computers sold last year, according to research firm IDC.
Of the manufacturers that make tablets in the same size range as the iPad, Samsung has the largest share.
The iPad doesn’t have expandable memory or the infrared diode that will let the Samsung’s models control a TV set or cable box.
The updated Samsung models won’t have higher resolution screens, even though analysts believe Samsung is one of the sources for the new iPad screen.
