Samsung promises 4G tablets this year; Galaxy S III for first half of 2012

Samsung has big plans to for the future. During an interview with Dow Jones Newswire, Samsung CEO J.K Shin revealed the company’s plans to launch a 4G version of the Galaxy Tab sometime this year. The Android 3.0 powered Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 are set to be released in June and the company is already talking about newer models.

In addition to 4G tablets, Samsung CEO J.K Shin also said that the company may launch a third version of the popular Galaxy S in the first half of 2012. The Galaxy S II, which is highly popular with over 1+ million units sold has yet to be released in many parts of the world. The company plans on releasing the Galaxy S II in over 120 countries by early June.

I’m happy that Samsung is planning on releasing newer models, but can they wait a little bit and let us enjoy what’s out now? The Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 aren’t even out yet and they’re already making it feel obsolete by stating that a newer, faster model will be out later this year. Same thing with the Galaxy S II. It hasn’t even been released in all target markets and they’re already talking about the Galaxy S III.
