The cute and chubby Galaxy Tab will soon have a big brother. At least that’s what the rumors mills are up to these days, which further would like us to believe the new tablet will be better than the present Galaxy Tab in every which way possible. Like the new Galaxy Tab 2 (until Samsung comes up with a proper name) will be bigger than the present gen Galaxy Tab with a 10.1 inch display, a lighter and thinner form factor along with a much improved 8.0 megapixel camera. The new tablet will have a dual core Qualcomm heart while the operating system will be Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Also, as Pocket Int points out, the Galaxy Tab 2 will still have a smaller over all dimension compared to the iPad in spite of it having a larger display. It is this that might turn out to be decisive in maintaining superiority in the tablet race as surely one might not prefer a large sized device when its mobility that is called for.
So all of it definitely points out to an exciting next week which is when the new Samsung tablet is expected to break cover. The venue – Mobile World Congress promises to be equally exciting as a host of upcoming tablet species are expected to first taste the light of day at the MCW. Notable amongst these are the Motorola XOOM, the Dell Streak 7, as well as the G-Slate from LG. Then, last but definitely not the least, the next generation iPad2 is also likely to make its debut at the MCW. Clearly, the next battleground of the great tablet war has shifted to Barcelona.
