    Samsung May Beat Apple to Market with a Retina-Res Tablet in February 2012


    This would be a remarkable coup, if it runs out to be true. A source within the industry indicates that Samsung may actually launch a Retina-resolution tablet in February of next year. This will be ahead of Apple's next iPad which was supposed to be the first tablet device with a Retina-display. The tablet that Samsung will supposedly introduce will have the following impressive specs:
    • Android 4.0/Ice Cream Sandwich
    • 11.6 Inch Display with a massive 2560 x 1600 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio
    • A dual-core Exynos 5250 CPU clocked at 2GHz - Which will be very competitive and slightly similar to the A6 CPU coming in the next iPad
    • A special feature called "Android Beam" for easy syncing of media with a Galaxy Nexus
    • Also a special wireless docking mode for gaming on HDTVs to help Samsung compete with Apple TV, AirPlay and others

    The above pic is likely just an artist's render at this point, but the tablet is likely to be announced during Mobile World Congress, in February of next year. We will keep a watch on this one for more info or pics.

    LMAO Are you kidding me? The 'pic above' is an iPad2 with a Samsung logo poorly layered on it.

    11.6 inches at 2560x1600! That would just be insane.

    Yep... I'm not sure if I would say "likely just an artists render." I'm fine with the picture but who couldn't tell that was an iPad?

    Who designed that rendering??

    Anyways, why does anyone need that kind of resolution on a screen?

    They don't, its just bragging rights. I've seen more than enough iPhone 4 phones with retina displays (man, I hate that name retina display) and you know, its not something amazing. If you look closely, you can see the pixels. On my DX with a much larger screen, I don't see any "jaggies" around the edges. Its just selling points.

    bragging rights and only bragging rights
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)
