Former Apple CEO Claims Samsung Galaxy Tab Only Serious iPad Competitor

 We all know that there is little legitimate competition out there in the tablet market. The only company that even comes close is Samsung and they are pretty far behind as well. Former Apple CEO John Sculley recently told the Economic Times that the Samsung Galaxy Tab is the only serious rival for the iPad.
Apple must think the same thing because that is the one model that the company is going after so forcefully for patent infringement.
The Economic Times sat down with Sculley for an interview about the future of the tech industry. He had nothing but positive things to say about Apple.
“I predict many good years ahead for Apple. The only serious tablet competitor in sight to the iPad at this time is Samsung’s Galaxy. We know the landscape can change quickly but Apple has an extraordinary executive team. Companies like Sony are trying to deal with the challenges of the legacy businesses (like the money losing television unit) while Apple is riding a wave and can focus all its talent on the future.”
Sculley also talked about the future of mobile gadgets in general. He believes that Nokia and Microsoft may “surprise the industry” by coming out with successful inexpensive smart phones, something the market has yet to see.
Regarding mobile operating systems, Sculley believes that Windows is making strides. “The developer versions of both Windows 8 and Windows Mobile are impressive. That said, my focus is on BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and the enterprise cloud computing opportunity.”
