The folks at Android and Me have made an interesting discovery that seems to lend credibility to the rumored existence of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6. A purported picture of the supersized tablet was spotted, of all places, on the Exynos product page of the company’s website.
To make it clear, there’s no marking whatsoever that gives out the picture as the mysterious Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6. What the picture does show is a slightly bigger looking Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with minor design differences. Of course, we shouldn’t always take things at face value.
Prior to the Mobile World Congress in February, the air was thick with rumors about Samsung releasing details of a certain Galaxy Tab with WXQGA resolution and a dual-core 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor. Do you see the connection now? The picture was found in the product page that details the Exynos 5250 processor.
On an unrelated note, one oversized Android tablet that’s definitely been seen and touched is the Toshiba AT330, with its gargantuan 13.3 inch display and 1920 x 1200 resolution. Still in prototype, the Toshiba AT330 packs Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 32GB storage, a regular SD card slot, and Ice Cream Sandwich.
This gives some indication that manufacturers will be more creative with the dimensions of the Android tablets they release, perhaps forced by the over saturated market in the sub 10-inch tablets category. It wouldn’t be too much of as stretch to think that Samsung is readying a tablet that can match or surpass the resolution of the new iPad and one up it even more by making it 11.6-inch in size.
Plus, we think it’ll be a good exercise for the hands.
