Samsung, Apple's biggest competitor in the market for iPad-sized tablet computers, is updating its line to include a feature that lets a tablet act as a universal remote control for an entertainment center.

The storage space on the new Galaxy Tab 2 will also be expandable with small memory cards.

The tablets will come in two sizes. A 7-inch version will cost $250 and goes on sale April 22. A 10-inch version will cost $400 and goes on sale May 13. The iPad's screen measures 9.7 inches diagonally.

Apple's iPad doesn't have expandable memory or the infrared diode that will let the Samsung Electronics Co. models control a TV set or cable box. Instead, the chief new feature of Apple's new iPad, released last month, is an ultra-high-resolution screen.
