If you thought Samsung was done making new tablets for a while, you were dead wrong. We can’t necessarily blame you, as Samsung now has manufactured tablets in nearly every size (and 2 at the 7.0″ screen size). Though we were originally told that Samsung would not make a big splash at Mobile World Congress later this month, Samsung will almost assuredly announce yet another tablet at the show.
In an invitation to Samsung’s Developer Day at Mobile World Congress 2012 posted on Samsung’s website, Samsung may have incidentally announced the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. The invitation 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. The Verge did a bit more digging onto Samsung’s site, and found a casting call for a teenage student to be in a commercial showing off the Galaxy Note 10.1, further lending to the evidence for the tablets existence. The casting call has since been taken down, meaning the commercial could be making it’s way to Samsung’s Youtube account shortly.
Those who critiqued the original Galaxy Note for how awkward you look while using it to make a phone call can breathe a sigh of relief; we expect that the Galaxy Note 10.1 will be a tablet-only device and avoid the awkward stares and finger-pointing.
I’m genuinely excited to see what the Galaxy Note 10.1 has to offer, as a 10.1″ tablet device with a stylus (sorry, S Pen) implementation that actually works well is at the top of my must-have list. For certain tasks such as drawing or note-taking, a stylus simply can’t be beat.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 has quickly propelled itself to the top of our list of things to look for at Mobile World Congress later this month. Taylor will be on hand to bring you all the goods from Barcelona.
