12-inch Windows 10 powered Samsung tablet certified by Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance

12-inch Windows 10 powered Samsung tablet certified by Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance
Earlier this year, there was speculation that Samsung was working on a 12-inch Windows 10 powered tablet with the model number SM-W700. At the time, there was no word on when the device might be unveiled to the public. As it turns out, Samsung is apparently in the process of getting the tablet ready to be rolled out early next year.

The SM-W700 has been certified by the Bluetooth SIG and the Wi-Fi Alliance, according to documents issued by both groups. And confirming that this model has a 12-inch screen is the tablet's listing on Zauba. The Indian import-export tracking site had noted last month that the SM-W700 was sent into India for testing, and was slated to be destroyed afterward. The listing on Zauba placed a value of $455 USD on the tablet. While that won't necessarily be the unit's retail price, it does tell us to expect it to be a high-end product.

Speculation about the SM-W700 has the Windows 10 tablet running on an Intel Core processor, and coming to market with an S Pen. We could see the 12-inch Windows 10 slate unveiled as soon as next month.

Thanks for the tip!

I wouldn't be too sure. A Windows PC would be OK, but Samsung doesn't have high Windows PC sales at all. Making a competitor to the Surface may not help either. Have you not seen Samsung's ATIV laptops? They are just as expensive as Mac's or actually more. I did want the ATIV 9, but it was way to pricey for a Windows PC laptop.

This might be a way of Samsung competing head-to-head with iPad pro.

Why compete with ipad Pro? Neither its Samsungs first 12" tablet, they had already released Tablet Pro and Note Pro 12.2" last year and doubt its selling well. 12" is just too big and not many wants such big, clumsy heavy tablet. Thats why Samsung havent released any new 12" tablet this year.

Won't be long for a Samsung Windows 10 phone. Android can only get you so far. Actual useful desktop software that justifies faster hardwares is only fitting for any flagship phones in the future.
