Samsung tablets to use Google’s Android

A senior official for Samsung reported that the company will depend on Google’s Android mobile-device software to run future versions of its tablet computers.

“We’ll continue to work with Android on future tablets,” JK Shin, head of the South Korean giant’s mobile division, told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.

Samsung Electronics is the world’s second-largest mobile phone maker after Nokia. Samsung however trails Apple’s iPhone and iPad in smartphones and tablets.

The Android system, which Samsung uses, has boosted its Smartphone business and Samsung hopes that it will do the same with their tablets.

The success of the release of the iPad surprised competitors early last year. In response, Samsung chose Android for its tablets and introduced the 17.8cm Galaxy Tab in October 2010 to compete with Apple.

Samsung will launch its new versions of the Galaxy Tab with a 22.5cm and a 25.5cm model. Both will run the latest version of Android, known as Honeycomb.

Both Apple and Samsung have been embroiled in lawsuits with Apple claiming that Samsung copied the look and feel of the iPhone and iPad. Samsung on the other hand claims that Apple violated patent covering its mobile phone transmission technologies.

All the while, Samsung expects its tablet shipments to rise to 7.5 million this year. “Android is the fastest-growing platform and the market direction is headed toward Android so we’re riding the wave,” said Younghee Lee, senior vice president of sales and marketing.

    If you’ve done office parties or corporate work, make sure
    to mention that as well. If I knew how to bake cookies,
    I would do that and send over a care package but Im much
    better at telling jokes so I go there and entertain, shake hands and thank the men and women who serve
    our country. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could take a
    magic pill and have a perfect relationship.

    Do some research and find out as much as you can about each open
    mic – try to find the one that is most positively reviewed,
    gets the biggest crowd and that is attended by the most comedians.
