Well, let's stop for a moment and consider:

1. The header does say "commentary". Eric is not a "reporter", he is a columnist, so he can state his opinion as biased as he wants to be.

2. Samsung's tablet strategy does suck.

re: Samsung Android Tablet Strategy Puzzles
So I noticed information week deleted a post that was posted from a reader. The reader was complaining about Eric Zeman's use of "godforsaken" and how he found it offensive. Well I would like information week to know that I find that offensive too. And I don't like Eric's writing style either too much attitude in it. Why you doggin on Samsung? You sound like a whinning hinning thumb sucker! & Americandoo & Eric Samsung's tablet strategy doesn't suck, that's why they are #1 consumers like a choice. But really Information Week, find a new conlumnist please!

I really appreciate Eric's humor in the article, and think some humor was needed in reporting more of Samsung's absurdly prolific tablet releases (which were summarized well in the article, explaining why anyone might be "doggin on Samsung").

G«£GodforsakenG«• is a good and perfectly appropriate way to describe the name "Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1)," and anyone who imagines that it's inappropriate should look it up.

Don't forget 4.52" and 4.65" too (Epic & Nexus)

According to what I've read, the Galaxy Note was targeted at a certain gender demographic. http://newstech24.com/2011/10/...

Therefore, those happy with the note might want a bigger version of it that works exactly the same so they don't have to relearn a new model. (makes sense from a business point of view as a good selling point to buy both)

The Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab 10.1 needed upgraded to dual core processors and higher res screens along with a new Android dessert flavor so the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) and the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) were needed to replace them although I expected at least the Exynos 1.2 Dual core chip or faster. It's sad that my GX2/Epic 4G touch phone will wipe the floor with either model.

I really expected an Exynos 1.5 Ghz or faster chip or something faster than the 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm.

Hi KevinSS,

The reason I removed the post was for two reasons.

1. The commenter's screen name was "InformationWeekEditor" -- that individual is not part of our staff.

2. The commenter used a photoshopped/distorted picture of Eric Zeman as his Avatar.

I removed the comments and asked the person to change his profile name and avatar, with the intent of restoring his comments once he did. I have yet to hear back from the individual.

As it has been pointed out, Eric is a columnist, which means his articles are more opinion-based. Here at InformationWeek, we have absolutely no issue with our readers disagreeing with our writers' opinions: everyone is entitled to their thoughts, so long as it's presented in a respectful manner.

Best,
