One-week tablet turnaround, claims Samsung

Summary:If allowed to release its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, it would take Samsung only a week to bring the devices to market so long as no changes are required, an Australian court has heard

A Sydney court has heard that if Justice Annabelle Bennett allowed Samsung to release its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet onto the market, it would take the Korean-based manufacturer a mere week to manufacture devices and put them on Australian shelves.

The comments came as part of a cross-examination in the court on Friday of Samsung Australia's head of Telecommunications, Tyler McGee.

McGee told the court that while he isn't an engineer, he expects no more than a seven-day gap between manufacturing the devices in Samsung's factories to having them on shelves, provided that no changes need to be made.
