Samsung unveiling next generation of Galaxy lineup at CTIA

| March 9, 2011 | Reply

Ready for even more Android Tablets? Well if you are then you will want to pay close attention to Samsung’s next “Unpacking” event that is set to take place on March 22nd in Orlando, Florida as part of their CTIA plans. “What is your tab life” is the main text on the page followed by a string of numbers: 78910. Still no official word as to what the numbers mean but some are speculating that it could point to Samsung reveling a 7inch, 8.9inch and 10 inch models of their new tab. If you already forgot Samsung unveiled their 10.1inch Honeycomb rocking monster at CES in January so hopes that more sizes coming would be a welcome surprise. From the image teaser provided it looks like one of the new devices Samsung is set to unveil is VERY thin and goes with what we heard from the Samsung camp after the iPad2 announcement that their current tablet line up was too thick. No specs what so ever have been leaked and all is just rumors right now until the 22nd of this month.

So Ninjas anything you would like to see Samsung bring out at CTIA? Think it’s totally new devices or refreshes of current models? Drop us a comment and give us your thoughts below!


Samsung Mobile will hold their next Unpacked event at CTIA in Orlando and all signs are pointing towards a new Tab announcement. The last Unpacked event gave us the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1, so our hopes are high that Samsung will announce the US versions of these products along with a few surprises.

The latest teaser reveals an image of an unannounced product and asks, “What’s your Tab life?” Below the question are the numbers 78910, which many people believe are Samsung’s different Tab sizes (7, 8.9, and 10 inch). Samsung launched the 7-inch Tab last year and showed off the 10.1 inch Honeycomb tablet at Mobile World Congress, so the 8.9 inch version should fit nicely between them.

Rumors suggested that Samsung Mobile was planning to unveil the Galaxy Tab 8.9 last month at MWC, but the device was pulled from the Unpacked event at the very last moment. We do not know if the product was not ready in time or Samsung chose to hold it over for their next event.

When it comes to the specs of the Galaxy Tab 8.9, I would expect it to be comparable to the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Motorola Xoom. That means you will find Android 3.0, a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and all the other bells and whistles.

The Tab 8.9 might also be one of the thinnest tablets, according to the teaser image provied by Samsung. We can see the back of a tablet with a bulge around the headset jack. This means Samsung’s new tablet could end up being thinner than the Apple iPad 2, which measured in at 8.8 mm.

Thankfully we won’t have to wait much longer to find out what Samsung has been working on because CTIA is only two weeks away. What do you hope Samsung will announce on March 22nd?
