Is Samsung readying its 11.8″, LTE, powerhouse tablet?
Well, that would certainly be a treat!
The Verge has sifted through some court documents from the Apple vs Samsung court case in California (that started today) to find something quite interesting. Samsung has in fact been working on a mammoth 11.8 inch Android tablet (codenamed P10), which is supposed to have LTE connectivity and a 2560 x 1600 (WQXGA) resolution – wow. Samsung will be pushing this device out to compete with the ‘resolutionary’ screen of the New iPad and to find a new niche in the market of huge screens. Possibly to look less like the iPad?
As mentioned, the Galaxy Tab 11.8 (for names sake) is rumoured to have LTE connectivity. It was first thought that it would be announced at Mobile World Congress earlier in the year, however, that never came to fruition. Why do you ask? I don’t know. It may be because Samsung wanted to focus on the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy Note 10.1, or it may be because Samsung just didn’t want to bring it out. I’m hoping that Samsung have been working behind the scenes to get the quad-core Exynos 4 working with an LTE connectivity and will be bringing it to consumers with the Galaxy Tab 11.8. Wouldn’t that be nice?
The ball’s in your court now Samsung. Please release this baby to us during your August 15th event for the next Galaxy device. We know it’s not mobile, but tablets are often considered to be separate from the mobile sector.
