We already know that Samsung has plans to make an announcement tomorrow at SXSW and there is a rumor going around about a 11.6-inch tablet that unfortunately is not true. According to a press release we recently received, tomorrow’s announcement is much less exciting than a new HD tablet from Samsung. Samsung is teaming up with Rovio for the (2nd) official unveiling of Angry Birds Space, and the two are also going to provide exclusive content for the Galaxy Note once the game is released on March 22nd. There will also be Galaxy Note’s on demo at the SXSW Samsung booth for attendees to get an early hands-on with the game and a chance to win prizes.
This is a far cry from the unveiling of an 11.6-inch tablet, but just for the heck of it why don’t I tell you about this rumored tablet anyway. Apparently Samsung has a new tablet they have been hiding up their sleeve and the rumored specs are nothing to scoff at. Given that the new iPad was just announced yesterday, this would have made for perfect timing as this new Sammy tablet would put the new iPad to shame. Now before you go saying 11.6-inches is too big, get a load of this. The 11.6-inch tablet is said to have a whopping 2560 x 1600 screen resolution, higher than the new iPad, and a density close to 260ppi. And because the bezel surrounding the screen is so slim, it’s said that the tablet’s dimensions aren’t much larger than the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Other believed specs include a 2GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor and will run Android 4.0. This isn’t a long shot for Samsung as they already have a 11.6-inch windows tablet, the Series 7 Slate. Now the question is when will we get to see this thing if not tomorrow?
What do you guys think, could you dig a tablet like this? Jump past the break to see the underwhelming press release.
