Samsung has two Android tablets codenamed P3100 and P5100 in the works

For Samsung Mobile, CES seemed to be about the AT&T Galaxy Note, and not much else. The speculation is rampant for what they will show us at Mobile World Congress. We were expecting a heavy dose of Galaxy S III, but that was squashed last week. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is starting to show its age, so it’s a safe bet that we will see an updated slate or two. With the iPad 3 on the horizon, and the likes of the ASUS Transformer Prime, Samsung needs to step up its game.

We recently reported that they have a 2GHz Exynos-powered tab in the works, and now two tabs just received WiFi certification – The GT-P3100 and GT-P5100. We don’t know anything more than these model numbers, but what we can interpolate from them is that it looks like they’re either 10-inch and 7 to 8-inch versions of the same thing or maybe one higher-end and one lower-end model. With the Amazon Kindle Fire tearing it up as of late, Samsung might consider a lower priced offering.

Could we see these tabs next month at Mobile World Congress? It’s likely, but only time will tell. I’m sure more details will surface soon, and we will let you know as soon as we find out.
