Samsung might ring in the new year with four new tablets, from ultra cheap to AMOLED ones
We've been hearing from many sources that Samsung will shift focus to midrange phones and tablets next year, as that's where the highest growth is expected then. The flagship market is nearing its point of saturation everywhere, while tablets and convertibles are becoming people's main computing devices in lieu of traditional PCs.

To reiterate those rumors, an insider has spilled the beans about Samsung's alleged tablet plans, saying that it will start the new year with a bang, releasing no less than four slates in Q1. One of those will be the market share warrior Galaxy Tab 3 Lite (SM-T111), which is likely to hit the market for just about one hundred EUR or USD, which infers rather modest specs.

The other three are likely to be the Super AMOLED tablets we heard about, the 12" Galaxy Note ((SM-P900) slate, and also eventually a 13.3-inch convertible that might be dual-boot Windows and Android, if Samsung has managed to iron out the patent infringement kinks that prevented the ATIV Q from launch. In any case, those are all expected to be announced early 2014, which means we might see them as soon as Samsung's alleged event around the MWC expo, which starts at the end of February. Samsung's not had a good tablet year in 2013, but it seems determined to turn those tides in 2014.

Yeah, I'm also excited to see what Samsung's new design language will look like. But I'm also curious to see what's the slogan for their #nextbigthing.

Samsung Galaxy S3 - Designed For Humans
Samsung Galaxy S4- Life Companion
Samsung Galaxy S5- Life Is Complicated??

So, should I get the Nexus 7 (2013) or the Xperia Tablet Z or wait for next year's tablets from the big bros?

If you can wait, just wait. Next month is already next year. Just hang in there. Almost January already. Wait till what they show at CES then decide from there.

I suggest that you wait too, thou Nexus 7 is terrific and Z is damn sexy. Note 8 2014 and 8 inch Xperia would be great. Also consider LG Gpad.

To be honest, unless they can largely solve the inefficiency with AMOLED with battery drain, as pertains to certain colors, and push the brightness higher without having to cap it to maintain battery life; AMOLED's probably not worth it. We'll see what the next generation AMOLED screens brings next year to mobile.

Not to mention the more-than-early color balance distortion due to the blue diodes wearing off much faster than the others.

AMOLED fundamentally sucks.

My eye still prefer Super AMOLED. Their movie display profile make things look stunning and yet natural to my eyes. Besides, i been using the Tab 7.7 for 18 months, display still as good as new. So i don't know what you are talking about.

Every single posting you made about Samsung is negative. And yet i see more and more people holding on to Samsung.making the brand very expensive to own that is my only grabs with it.

So JakeLee you fundamentally sucks.

You must be the one who "sucks".

Pretty much everyone in the imaging industry despises AMOLED due to its color distortion and over saturation.

I don't know what you do for living, maybe you don't need much of color sensation, but if your eyes are telling you all those lies about AMOLED being stunning and more natural, I strongly advise you taking a visit at your local ophthalmologist as soon as possible,

because

your eyes must "sucks".

Why is this form of trolling allow in the forum?

People like you makes me want to support Samsung even more period.

You mean "allowed", right?

How about asking yourself first?

And FYI, neither Sammy nor Apple cares about whom you support. period.

PS : Neither do I

Your hate for Samsung is too great for you not to care. I buy Samsung products as it serves me well compare to other brands.

Another brand that i am in favor is Philips, they make better budget shaver than brun. Ok.. Ok i bit out of context. JakeLee you seem like an intelligent person, please stop the hate.

Was almost wanting to switch my purchase decision from Samsung Note 10.1 2014 LTE edition to Asus padfone infinite but a few JakeLee anti Samsung comments cure me of that.
