Court Documents Point to Samsung Preparing an 11.8-Inch Tablet with ‘Retina’ Display

The Apple Vs. Samsung trial began today, in California, and some court documents were made public revealing Samsung’s future tablet plans. Samsung is working on a tablet dubbed “P10”, the tablet would include LTE connectivity and an 11.8-inch display at 2560×1600 resolution (WQXGA). As Samsung is one of the world’s largest suppliers of LCDs and AMOLEDs, it’s no surprise they would push a screen to rival that of the iPad. Given the pixel density of 256 ppi, the P10 would qualify as a ‘Retina’ display, although, I’m sure Samsung will come up with something more creative to call it. Hit the break for the court doc to see for yourself.

This news was leaked by a “high-ranking” Samsung executive here. Also, Samsung may be pulling a NVIDIA, and selling the 2GHz Exynos dual-cores to any manufacturer that wants them in their hardware too. Smart move.
