We have heard about Samsung’s plans to launch a 12 inch Android tablet in the past. And those rumors appear to be gaining more traction according to a new report. Taiwanese source Digitimes cites supply chain sources claiming that a large sized Samsung tablet is in the works. This tablet apparently was supposed to be co developed by Google, but given Google’s focus on the 7 inch tablet segment, Samsung will be developing the tablet on its own. There’s no word on when this could come to fruition, but we don’t see it happening anytime this year.
The tablet market is currently dominated by the iPads and 7 inch tablets, so it will be interesting to see how the market will react to a bigger tablet. It is being said that the notebook market could be impacted by such tablets, as most entry level notebooks/ultrabooks feature a 11 inch screen. Perhaps Samsung could try to bring in a 12 inch Galaxy Note tablet as rumored, which would certainly spice things up in the tablet segment.
