Samsung to be first to market with retina display tablet?

Samsung to be first to market with retina display tablet?

Android may gain another small victory over iOS, and this one comes courtesy of Samsung. According to a contact at BGR, Sammy is set to release an 11.6-inch ICS tablet at Mobile World Congress in just a few months. While the display is larger than that of the Tab 10.1, the device itself is said to be about the same size, thanks to a smaller bezel. The display will have an incredible resolution of 2560 x 1600, with an aspect ratio of 16:10. A dual-core Exynos 5250 processor clocked at 2GHz will be tucked neatly inside, along with NFC capabilities, and of course Android Beam. The hope here is that users will be able to share media between the tablet and a Galaxy Nexus, or another NFC-enabled ICS device.

But wait, there’s more! The device is rumored to have a “special wireless docking mode” for gaming on HDTVs, which will supposedly help Samsung compete with Apple’s AirSync and AppleTV.

Naturally, Samsung had no comment when questioned about such a device, so this is all speculation for now. So what do you think? Excited about such a high resolution tablet? Wish it had a quad-core processor instead? Drop a comment below!

I've been an Android fanboy since day one, but I've never had a chance to truly express my voice and be a part of the Android Community. When AndroidGuys starting accepting applications for interns, I saw my opportunity. I joined the AndroidGuys team and haven't looked back!

    I’m sorry, but I’m only interested in the Tegra 3 at this point. The functionality of that 5th core is just killer.
