Mysterious Samsung tablet appears at the FCC, stays for lunch

Mysterious Samsung tablet appears at the FCC, stays for lunch
Is this the 11.8 inch Samsung tablet code named the P10?

Is this the 11.8 inch Samsung tablet code named the P10?

About a week and a half ago, during the Apple v. Samsung patent trial, documents revealed a new tablet for the Korean based manufacturer code named the P10. The 11.8 inch display that the device will purportedly offer, is said to have a resolution of 2560 x 1600 which would take it into Retina display territory. Not much is revealed about the tablet except for the 16GB of native storage it sports, the support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity on the machine.

Looking at the drawing of the back cover, it would seem that the corners are more rounded than current Samsung tablets. This could indicate the beginning of a new line, or a softening in the design of a refresh for a current tablet. While the FCC visit isn't really much of a help, perhaps some more information will be released in court. After all, a tablet with an 11.8 inch display is a bit too big to keep under wraps for so long, especially when you have Apple's attorneys requesting every piece of scrap paper ever used by Samsung employees.

...... The article clearly states 2560x1600... On a 11.8-inch display that comes out ot 255.84 PPI -- which rounds up to 256 PPI... But... well.... um.... yeah...
