As many of you may know, not so long ago, during a conference, Samsung Ireland’s General Manager Gary Twohig announced a 10-inch Galaxy Tab in the near future. Even though his statement was later modified, so that the ties between mister Twohig and the 10-inch tablet were removed, the question remained: can we expect the bigger brother of Samsung’s 7-inch Galaxy Tab to be available soon or not.
After all of those heart stopping news, and excitement for all the tablet fans out there, there is now a very strong possibility that T-Mobile will have the upper hand in the battle with the competitors. Seeing how AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless customers will only be able to purchase the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab, if T-Mobile would have acces to the bigger version, it may be a huge advantage.
According to T-Mobile’s site, we caught a glimpse of the 10-inch tab’s specs. Apparently, it will run Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition as it’s OS, it will be equipped with the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 that will create a beautiful experience worthy of the 10.1-inch 1024 x 600-pixel glossy WSVGA display. Along with the 1 GB of RAM (DDR2), the 160 GB 5400 RPM HDD, and software like: Microsoft Works 9, McAfee Security Center and Adobe Reader 9, all of this powered by a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, the tablet will be quite a beast. According to T-Mobile and their tiny mistake in jumping the gun, their faithful customers can look forward to all of this next month.
Of course, the specs were later pulled of T-Mobile’s site, but I believe it is safe to say, considering this latest slip to the public amongst others that made the public pretty eager and excited about the Galaxy Tab, that there is a pretty good chance that all of this little mistakes might become true. Also, taking into consideration the mammoth company that is Samsung, one might wonder if not all of the apparently accidental disclosures of future plans concerning the Galaxy Tabs were actually accidental. I mean come on, how many times can you blurt out stuff about the same product. Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter, because if all of the drama ends with a new gadget, it will be a wonderful thing for us, the customers.
