According to Digitimes, Samsung plans to launch 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch tablets as well as a series of ultrabooks in 2013 following its success gained with sales of smartphones.
The 7-inch and 10.1-inch tablets are both set to appear in retail channels in the first half of 2013 to avoid directly competing against any Apple devices that are estimated to come out in the second half of the year. In addition to the 7-inch model with a US$149-199 price range, Samsung is also considering an 8-inch device with a price range between US$249-299 to fill the gap between its 7-inch tablet and entry-level iPad mini, which is priced at around US$329.
Samsung is estimated to have shipped 15 million tablets in 2012 and is aiming to ship 40 million units in 2013.
To maximize the benefits of the Galaxy S4, you are going to need some accessories and it appears a full list along with pricing has been uncovered.
Among the accessories include mundane things like additional batteries and flip covers, but there are some more interesting accessories such as the $129.99 Body Scale, $99.99 Game Pad and $129.99 S Band for monitoring your heart. Check them out below.
