There is a rumor floating around that Samsung may be debuting a new next-gen tablet at Mobile World Congress in February. Samsung has made it clear that they will not be showing off the SGS3 at MWC yet, but they promised "interesting stuff". This new "stuff" could be a tablet with a dual-core 2GHz Exynos 5250 processor, a larger than 10-inch display with WXQGA (2560 x 1600 pixels) resolution and Ice Cream Sandwich.

The rumor was spawned because supposedly, someone spotted a prototype of the tablet at CES. Supposedly, this new Exynos 5250 "chip should produce twice the computing power, increased memory bandwidth, and five times the graphics horsepower as the current generation of CPUs, as well as all-day battery life". If this is not vaporware, and if Sammy can sell it at a competitive price point, then then we could be in for a treat next month.

I guess I'm the pessimist here (forgive me!). "...if Sammy can sell it at a competitive price point..." Based on the Galaxy Tab, I'd have to predict competitive means "one of the top two most-expensive tablets!" :blink:

I still think it's cool news, and I'd love to see how the vapor-tablet fares against the Asus Prime!

Kinda disappointed that the next Exynos won't be quad-core...

Yeah. I was rather surprised by this as well. It seems that Samsung is a bit behind their competitors on this one.
