Samsung’s new Galaxy shoots for iPad, misses

If any company can build a full-sized tablet computer capable of rivaling Apple Inc.’s iPad, it is Samsung Electronics Co. Except it didn’t.

It is not because of a lack of effort. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, running Google Inc.’s Android operating system, was the best non-Apple tablet of 2011. Apple thinks it’s because Samsung violated their patents, and in June a federal judge halted US sales of the Galaxy Tab, part of a broader legal battle between the two tech giants.
