Unlike most Android manufacturers, Samsung seems intent on retaining its strategy to manufacture hundreds of variants of devices that vary in the tiniest of manners. After creating something like a gazillion tabets in the 7-to-9 inch range, they seem to be interested in testing the upper limit on tablet sizes if the rumors of the 11.6 inch tablet are to be true.
Although there hasn’t really been any solid basis for the rumor, which first originated at BGR, Android and Me found this picture on Samsung’s webpage detailing the Exynos 5250 processor. There are striking similarities with the Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1), but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the tablet will make its way to the market. It could easily be a mock-up or a reference device for the processor platform.
How many of you would be interested in the larger 11.6 tablet? Personally, I’m someone who prefers a smaller one, and will probably sell my Galaxy Tab 10.1 and get the Nexus Tablet (if it does roll out) or the Asus MeMo once they are available. I think an 11.6 will be too large for those who use it mainly for reading purposes, and I’m not too sure if a 1.5-inch increase would be a killer feature for those who consume a ton of media or use it in conjunction with some form of a keyboard dock.
