Frankly speaking i do get confused when they just put a few samsung devices released ask me to identify. I could still get them right but would require a bit of observation. The same thing applies to their tablets.

Nexus 11? TAKE MY MONEY! And make sure you use an adequate video chip this time!

The video chip is already known if you trust the leak, Exynos 5410= PowerVR SGX544MP3 (Tri-Core) @533 MHz.
Judge yourself if that's adequate or not... It's around the Adreno 320 in the HTC one, a bit weaker than the Adreno 320 in the Galaxy S4 or the Mali 604 in the Nexus 10.

11" is too big for a tablet, especially in 16:10, they need to get rid of some of the bezels, and nexus devices don't support micro SD cards

nah 10 is to small! aslong as the device is kept slim and light then i dont mind a larger screen. I been looking at upgrading my transformer prime

if sales were that weak why make the note 8.0? lol, just making a guess i dunno either

Nexus 11 please. Octa-Core A15 and A7 + super high resolution = drool worthy.
Added to the wish list.

Galaxy Tab DUOS 7.0? A dual-SIM tablet? You kidding me Samsung?

I hate it when they say it's an "octa-core" processor. Ugh. It is quite misleading to some because it is just a 4+4 (Quad A15 + Quad A7) processor... A true octa has the capability to run all eight cores.

Since Samsing is coming out with 6.3 inch phones, I think they are not very keen on the 7 inch tablet. Thats the only explanation for such poor specs for the 7 inch tablet.

I would get a 11" Nexus tab. I have a Note 2 so the tablet would just stay at home. A 11" inch would be perfect for that.

I'll just stick to my Note 10.1. A tablet without a pen is useless for me. People are dumb for not realizing this. It just shows that 90% of people who buy tablets don't actually need one, and just use it for movies and stupid swipe games.

And being "the only one with brains", i guess the world must see things from your perspective? Ridiculously ignorant

No amoled for the bigger screens? I read an article on here a while ago saying they would be making their tablets with amoled displays. An 11 inch super amoled display would be awesome.

Samsung's already produced an 11 inch (11.6 to be exact) tablet in the form their Windows 8 tablet which apparently wasn't too well received by the public, probably due to Windows 8 and its price point I assume. As a happy, proud & content Nexus 10 owner, I think I'll stick with my N10 until it just craps out, as it has a solid mix between power, CPU & GPU wise, and a gorgeous screen with a great deal of developer support. My only complaint is that the colors could of been calibrated a little better, as purples, from my eye, appear a little washed out.
It may be a while off, but I think the next "big" advancement in the tablet world will be tablets with 4K resolutions, or damn near 4K. Continuing to increase screen sizes without increasing screen resolutions & quality results in devices like the Note 10.1: A device with relatively a high end price, high end internals & a sub-par screen which is a massive disappointment co sideri g the screen is arguably the most important part of any device, as that's what you interact with constantly.
Although Samsung is certainly on top of the game & I appreciate the options they offer to their consumers, hope they take a step back, much like HTC vowed & appears to be doing this year, & place more effort into making better quality phones & tablets opposed to flooding the market with "new" and essentially rebranded items, as it appears their doing with a few products they have in the pipeline.

Will the Nexus 11 be a true Octacore or a Bulls**t Octacore like the S4?

Nexus 11 is the only device sounds tempting.

I hope Google don't approved Samsung doing Nexus 11. Current Nexus 10 is hanging crap! I am so regret buying it!
