Samsung may release multiple versions of its Galaxy Tab tablet this year.
While it’s already fairly certain we will see the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 at Mobile World Congress next month, it now appears that there may be more than one version this year. According to a press release issued today, Samsung says that it “will complement its Galaxy Tab with a range of devices to optimally meet various user needs.” What exactly that means is unknown at this time.
Samsung originally promised last year that there would be multiple versions of the Galaxy Tab, but as we all know, only one version of the device made it out. The rumor is that the device to be shown at MWC in Barcelona will be a 10-inch version, so an update to the 7-inch seems inevitable at some point this year.
It could be that Samsung plans on releasing just the two different sizes, but the wording in the release seems to indicate more models than that. They might even just be going the Apple route of Wi-Fi and cellular models in two different sizes, but even that still doesn’t feel exactly right.
Hopefully we’ll learn more next month, but until then they certainly have given us something to ponder.
What say you? What do you think are Samsung’s plans for the Galaxy Tab line?
