A Samsung executive has spoken out at the Mobile World Congress 2012 and he just admitted that Samsung is having less success than it hopes in the tablet market.

The comments come from Hankil Yoon, a product strategy executive for the South Korean consumer electronics giant, according to CNet.

During a discussion with the media and participants of the MWC 2012, the executive was quoted by CNet saying that: “Honestly, we’re not doing very well in the tablet market.”

Samsung has a whole line of Galaxy Tab devices lined up to fight the dominant Apple iPad.

Samsung, by the frank admission of its executive, is revealed to not be as successful as it has first set out to be.

Nonetheless, Yoon did say that Samsung is confident with its Galaxy Note smartphone-tablet crossover.

The Samsung Galaxy Note features a 5.3-inch screen, the biggest such screen for a smartphone from Samsung.

“The best thing to survive in the market is to kill your products. We want to stay competitive in the market,” Yoon says referring to Samsung not minding if its Galaxy Note ate into the sales of its tablets.
