The intriguing mention of a Galaxy Note 10.1 in the description of Samsung’s Mobile World Congress developer day suggests that the company has bigger plans for their Wacom-based S Pen. Nestled between mentions of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note and the Wave 3 Bada phone is the peculiar name, which drops the Tab name normally associated with the 10.1-inch screen size. This particular developer event looks to split time between developing for Samsung’s Bada platform and the S Pen, implying that the name isn’t a simple typographical error.
Further fueling the flames is a casting calls for a commercial that “will show a Galaxy Note 10.1 used for education, financial planning, and art.” The role being filled is that of a “teen student.” The listing has been cached but no longer appears to be active. The shoot was scheduled for early February. The timing lines up all too well with MWC, which kicks off in a little under two weeks.
Samsung has intimated in the past that they have been exploring more uses for the S Pen, and a tablet is almost a no-brainer. Mobile World Congress also seems like the most likely place for the company to unveil the new product. Will it be the quad-core Exynos slate we have heard rumors of in the past or something completely different? These are exactly the kind of questions that have us looking forward to the trip to Barcelona.
