Though we were aware that Samsung would not make a big splash at MWC, Samsung will almost assuredly announce yet another tablet at the show. Samsung has apparently confirmed a 10.1-inch tablet version of its Galaxy Note pen-enabled smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, with an S-Pen developer event to be held at MWC 2012 later this month.
Galaxy Note 10.1 commercial was spotted by The Verge, no longer available officially but still visible in Google’s cache. The advert “will show a Galaxy Note 10.1 used for education, financial planning, and art” while the actor would play the role of a “teen student” that “uses his Galaxy Note 10.1 to record, take pictures, edit” and more.
The invitation posted on Samsung’s website, suggests that attendees will be treated to a demonstration of the S Pen SDK and bada 2.0 SDK platforms as well as the Galaxy Note (5.3), Galaxy Note 10.1, and Wave 3/Wave Y devices.
A Samsung rep said, “I think a pen interface continues to make a lot of sense across a number of screen sizes, like the larger is more obvious of those. That’s about as specific as I can be without announcing a product.”
Will it be the quad-core Exynos slate we have heard rumors of in the past or something completely different? These are exactly the kind of questions that have us looking forward to the trip to Barcelona.
