Is Samsung preparing an 8-inch 1080p full HD Galaxy Tab for MWC?
posted by Victor H. / Jan 18, 2013, 9:04 AM
The 8-inch Galaxy Note previously surfaced as the Samsung GT-N5100 and was said to come with last year’s specs with the assumption that it’d compete in price against the iPad mini.
So, overall, tech specs of the 8-inch Note were said to include an 8-inch 1,280 x 800-pixel screen and an Exynos 4412 chip.
Today however, new sources have dropped their 2 cents on the rumor saying that the device will actually launch as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and feature a 1080p full HD display.
We don’t know which of the rumors to believe, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see both devices announced by Samsung in just over a month. Or none. It’s all still just a rumor.

Are you using the charger that comes with the tablet? The charger that comes with phones is usually having a power of 5 watts or even less. Tablet chargers come with a power of 10 Watts, because they have higher current (amperes). You are saving more than double the time when charging using the tablet's charger. But in emergency cases when your tablet charger is not available, a microusb port becomes useful because it is widely used. Better than nothing, isn't it? :-)

I Pray that Windows 8 is put on this tablet as well as android. Windows 8 is getting the code "Blue update that will enable windows 8 to be able to be put on smaller tablets in fact HTC later this year is going to have 7 inch Windows tablet up for sale. I hope that windows 8 is on it instead of windows Rt because windows RT is not as popular as FULL windows 8 on tablets at this time. next year when windows Rt tablets have more apps it will take off and sell better.
