iPad 2 Rival Alert : Samsung Preparing Two Galaxy Tab Tablets

Samsung is getting ready to release two new tablets whose references have emerged on the certification website ahead of their impending presentation, possibly at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.

Both of them, the GT-P5100 and the GT-P3100, are expected to come with Wi-Fi and 3G capabilities, which oddly puts them in the smartphone category according to

According to AndroidAuthority, The P5100 is expected to have a larger than 10.1-inch screen (possibly 11.6-inch with a resolution of 2560x1600 pixels).

At 4.1 megapixels, it will be offering four times the screen resolution of current Honeycomb based tablets and more than five times that of the Apple iPad 2.

Perhaps more importantly, that resolution is twice that of full HD television and will be the highest available to consumers at an affordable price.

Other expected features include: a dual core Exynos 5250 system on chip based on the Cortex A15 architecture and clocked at 2GHz with a new GPU, the Mali T604, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The P3100 is expected to be a smaller iteration of the tablet, with the only differences being the screen size (and the resolution) as well as the battery capacity.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
