10inch Tab on the Way
Something that's been on a few sites over the past few days: A ten inch version of the tab is slated to appear in 2011. Details seem a little scanty, but I think we can assume it'll run the same specs with a 10inch display. Must have a bigger battery, since it'll be physically bigger and have a more demanding screen, but if that translates to more actual life-time is yet to be seen.
I think we'll see it similarly dropping on just about every major carrier, and with a Wifi only version too.
So, would the 10inch Tab interest you more than the 7inch ?
Personally, I am much more about something that fits into a jacket pocket, but for those who have been grumbling about a 7inch not being worth it over a high end smartphone, maybe this is the device for you. For anyone worrying about price (which is apparently a lot of people) would 3 extra inches of real estate for only a few extra bucks make you look more favourably on it ?
Obviously, this seems to be aiming at competing with the similarly sized Archos, although probably without the harddrive option, but then again we've had rumours of USB host, which would allow expanding the storage.
As a final piece of theory crafting: Could this be the rumoured SAMOLED Tab for next year ? I always thought it would be weird to upgrade the standard Tab so quickly, and if this device stays around 1024x768 (can't see them going higher before a substantial OS update) then SAMOLED would dramatically improve the video viewing experience though better contrast and colours without having to up the pixel density.
So yeah... What do you guys think ? Better ? Worse ? Is samsung trying to make every single possible permutation of the Galaxy hardware ?
