Google jacked them by announcing that the Galaxy tablets could not be upgraded to Honeycomb. Perhaps because of the Apple business?!

#1. They have given Apple such huge breaks to get their business that their magins on those contracts suffer almost to bleeding. #2. Samsung HAD a very good reputation in the home entertainment (flat panel TV) that they were able to sell their product at a premium, but other brands have caught up and even surpassed Samsungs product line and are either priced the same with better specs or are less expensive.
