I am simply curious because Samsung and LG both make the panels for Apple products (not just iPad but iPhone and MacBook too). They must have read up on the specifications that Apple gave them considering they have to know exactly what they are going to be manufacturing for them. With this type of knowledge, why is it that Samsung didn't come out with a Galaxy Tab with a Retina display first? The one thing about the Android competitors is that they seem to have no problem coming out with a new product every few months. Apple sticks to a somewhat yearly update cycle so if something doesn't make it into their product for the current generation, they basically have to wait a year. But Samsung seems to come out with a new product every month. With Samsung and their 200 different phones, I wonder why they didn't rush out to get a Retina tablet first? Do you think companies simply like to wait for an Apple product to come out first so they can reverse engineer it?
