Default Where was your tablet made?

My box says: Made in Vietnam by Samsung.
I have owned Samsung Galaxy S2, Note 1, Note 2, older Note 10.1 tablet and they all were made in Korea. This is first one made in Vietnam.

It was made in Vietnam. That still takes some getting used to here in the US, seeing made in Vietnam, not that I'm against it (I'd rather have it made in the US, but what can ya do), it's just weird to see it. I was 4 in 1975 when the war ended.

Haven`t got my new 2014 edition yet , but had bought 2 from the 2012 edition , 1st one made in Korea & the 2nd was made in Vitenam & build quality was horrible with the Vietnamese one, Korean Build was much more firm & solid.

i thought the Vietnam Factory was dedicated to the market of middle east / africa

while S Korea Factory directed towards Europe and North America, thats why we try here in middle east to get the Version from Europe or USA with older model of 10.1

need more people to confirm that from USA, or what Retailers selling which version

The Serial sticker on my "2014 Note 10.1" box just says: Made by Samsung. Couldn't find any other reference anywhere on the box, besides letters in the Serial number.
