The Sammobile website has said that the Korean manufacturers are planning to throw enough tablet computer shaped mud at the wall, in the hope that some of it will stick – an approach they have seemingly taken with smartphones over the past year or so. Four new device swill be ready for launch in the first three months of 2014.
Obviously, as is the way with rumours, there are no confirmed details as yet, but here are the most likely devices.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will be an £80, pared down version of the Tab 3. It will have a 1.2GHz dual core processor, and 1024 x 600 resolution 7″ screen. This means that it will be fighting front and centre with the Tesco Hudl.
There are also reports of a 12.2” device that will be harbouring an eight core processor under its bonnet. It will have 2560 x 1600 resolution, and it should really get the geek juices flowing.
If that doesn’t prove heavy enough for your tastes, and you’re prepared to sport a kangaroo pouch to carry it, there may be a 13.3” that will include both Windows and Android.
There are allegedly two AMOLED screened devices already in the making – an 8-inch and a 10-inch variant. While Samsung currently uses LCD for its tablets, they do favour AMOLED on high end smartphones, so there could be legs in this one.
Will any of these tablets ever see the light of day?
Would you buy any if they did?
Should we expect a similar approach to launching multiple variants of washing machines?
