Is a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 about to be unveiled at MWC?
Since the Samsung Galaxy S III will definitely be absent from MWC 2012, haven't you wondered what the Korean tech company is planning to show off during the expo? Well, a piece of the puzzle just surfaced on the web, most likely by accident. On its official blog, Samsung posted a guide to its developer event, which is to take place at MWC 2012. The guide itself, which has already been taken down, may not be of much interest, but what is surprising about it that it mentions a device by the name of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

On one hand, this could be nothing but a typo that the guys at Samsung failed to notice. But on the other hand, the leak could indicate that Samsung is indeed working on a tablet tailored to work with a stylus. You know, a stylus like the S-Pen that comes with the Samsung Galaxy Note. Now would be a good time to point out that the S-Pen is not just an ordinary twig. It uses Wacom active digitizer technology for input, which is why it is more accurate than a run-of-the-mill capacitive stylus.

Last time when we came across a clue hinting at Samsung tablets enhanced with S-Pen input was when Ryan Biden, who is a Product Marketing Manager at Samsung, expressed his fondness of the pen-based input method, especially when larger screen sizes were concerned. He didn't go into details, however, and left our imagination figure out what kind of product he might be referring to.

But wait, there's more! The guys at The Verge just spotted a casting call for a Samsung commercial – a commercial for a device called, you guessed it, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Judging by what the commercial listing mentions, the gizmo would be suitable for use in education, financial planning, and the field of arts. And although the listing is not active anymore, the advertisement in question is to be shot in February, which makes a debut for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 at MWC seem even more plausible.

Of course, we will know more as soon as MWC 2012 kicks off in a little less than two weeks from today. We will be there and will report all about it, so stay tuned!

I've been dreaming of that gadget for years. I wonder what's taking Wacom and Adobe so long?

honestly, exactly what I said. You got your normal digital lovers and people that want a tablet, but it screams artistic to me. You also have your business side where people can sign digital documents like contracts and stuff, so it would be useful there. But its no coincidence that at the original note unvieling, they had a guy making a picture on the thing in the background.

Another tablet? Again? The Tab 10.1 wasn't enough? It was such a fail you have to create another tablet with just a stupid pen? You couldn't think of that the first time you made the 10.1? I'm not buying this tablet. That's if its a tablet

U sound really stpid. Why does Apple have to make 4S when 4 was ok, why does Apple have t work on an iPad3 while 2 is still just fine. Why Galaxy S3 while S2 is the phone of the year for 2011? Well the answer is, innovation dumb @$$. U sound like an 8yr old, grow up, nd leave grown up stuff to grown ups. Go watch Pokemon DVDs

i think what solidsnake meant is that Samsung releases to many similar devices within a few months, kindda like how HTC released thier phones in 2011. It's good since users have tons of choice to choose from, but when it comes to update, there's bound to be problems.

So u like the fact that some new Samsung android devices won't get ics like the galaxy w.look at HTC now, top many devices and not all of third devices get updated and many of the phones look similar..noe its Samsung turn..open up your eyes, and change that silly name of yours.

Another tablet? Again? The iPad wasn't enough? It was such a fail you have to create another tablet with just a stupid camera? You couldn't think of that the first time you made the iPad? I'm not buying this tablet. That's if its a tablet..

i'm not trying to mock the iPad, i'm mocking you and your shallow mindedness..

10.1 Note should be named Galaxy Pad.

Oops, no. It's got the word 'Pad.' Apple's gonna sue..
