Resolution on new Samsung GALAXY Note tablet, GT-N5100, confirmed by User Account Profile

Resolution on new Samsung GALAXY Note tablet, GT-N5100, confirmed by User Account Profile
The other day, a DLNA certification tipped us again to the GT-N5100, said to be a new Samsung GALAXY Note tablet. The first time we had seen that model number was for a Wi-Fi certification. While the size of the tablet's screen is unknown, the thinking is that there could be a 7.7 inch screen on the slate in order to compete with the 7.9 inch screen on the Apple iPad mini.

Regardless of the size of the screen, a User Agent Profile revealed that the resolution of the screen will be 1280 x 800 which is the resolution of the 7 inch display on the Google Nexus 7. More speculation has the mystery tablet packing the same quad-core 1.4GHz processor that powers the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 tablet. And yes, the S Pen is expected to be along for the ride. At this stage in the game, there is no excuse for not having Android 4.1 installed.

Samsung hopes to compete with the full-sized Apple iPad models with the Google Nexus 10 which was introduced on Monday with an incredible 2560 x 1600 10 inch screen packing pixel density of 299ppi. The GT-N5100, as we said, could be aimed squarely at the Apple iPad mini and considering that the latter has just launched, and with the holiday shopping season staring us squarely in the face, we wouldn't expect the Korean based manufacturer to wait too long to let the cat out of the bag on this one!

Actually, with the Galaxy Tab 7.7 they allready have a fantastic tablet that could be the Android equiualent of the iPad mini, but somehow i doesnt get much media attention...

It was a great tablet, just got overshadowed with all the other ones that were released at that time. The 7.7 was an option I was looking at getting until I heard of the Asus Memo, which later became the N7. Samsung will have to do some creative pricing if it's going to compete with the Mini & N7.

I don't think they are aiming to compete with the N7 with the price, the note is their premium device, so it would be priced somewhere around the ipad mini or slightly lower but not in the range of the N7

Agree. I'm guessing just below the Mini pricing so they will still make a profit but have that as a selling point.

the 7.7 and 7 are great tablets even for the price. Its to bad samsung didnt push both of them down our throats like they are doing with the gs3 and the note 10.1

a 7.7 inch note tablet could easily put it as the top tablet in the 7inch segment...ipad mini was never a competition...nexus 7 will be

If this new tablet is configured at least as good as the Note II is, I would buy it just to give the middle-fingered wave to Apple.

It looks like a "me too" 7 inch category tablet.... Samsung can (should) come out with better products than this

Samsung made the first 7" tablet.

They're "me too"-ing themselves. They already have pretty much the same tablet already just with a dual core.http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-7.7_id6115 This is very much an iterative update. However I'm sure it'll be a good tablet, just not anything groundbreaking.

im imagining this 7.7/7.9 tab would be exactly as that tablet but with updated specs though...which is awesome :D

I agree but for me to be sold on the idea, they'll have to up their build quality.

7.7" is fine, but why not use 1080p screen?

7. sheik

Cause it'll increase the production costs and the 7 ' tablets are considered as budget class. But at least they should have made it 1440x900 like in nook

if they do then they'll have to lower the the quality or even omit some other features of the tablet...

i think it'd be great if Samsung can streamline the resolution of screens - under 7" - 720p 7" to 9" - 1080p 9" & up - 1600p

16. AFnerdTP unregistered

at least.. for the high-end models
