Samsung is about to announce the 11.6 inch version of Galaxy Tab

Samsung is about to announce the 11.6 inch version of Galaxy Tab

There was a lot of hype about a mysterious 11.6 inch version of the Galaxy Tab. According to several sources, Samsung was supposed to announce this tablet during the Mobile World Congress but this did not happen. After the MWC and amid all the hype of the new iPad, it seemed that everyone has forgotten about this 11.6 inch Galaxy Tab. But now it seems that this is real and not only that, sources are claiming that Samsung is about to announce this version of Galaxy Tab, on Friday.
 
Although this is a grand rumor, it does not seem to be real. Because the event during which, according to the sources who revealed this information, Samsung would release this device would be held at South By SouthWest (SXSW) inAustin,Texas at 4PM Central time and during a similar event last year, the main focus was software and web properties. So this event is almost entirely devoted to software aspects and we can hardly expect a new product launched during the event. Besides, so far Samsung has not sent any invitation of this event to the hardware-focused media experts. If Samsung is about to launch a major new product, it is highly unlikely that invitations would not be sent to these sections of media. Finally, the time factor is also important and at present, there is a lot of hype about the new iPad, so Samsung would probably wait for a while to release any new major product.
 
The 11.6 inch version of Galaxy Tab, if there is any such thing, is expected to have some of the finest technical specs in the market, although details are not known about most of them. For example, this device would have an amazing resolution of 2650×1600 which is normally a resolution that one sees on 30 inch monitors. What’s remarkable, this resolution is even better than the resolution of the new iPad. Coupled with Ice Cream Sandwich, this device would certainly be the best Android device around. However, the rumor that this device would be released on Friday seems highly unlikely and chances are that Samsung would wait for another few weeks before announcing this tablet. There has also been a shift in the strategy of Samsung about the announcement of devices. Samsung has been doing so in its own organized events instead of doing that during the trade shows. Well, here’s another strategy in which Samsung seems to be following Apple.
