Samsung SCH-I815 Passes Through Bluetooth SIG, New 7″ Verizon Tablet?

A mysterious Samsung device made its way into Bluetooth SIG on Monday with a model number of SCH-I815 that looks straight out of Verizon’s naming scheme.  Whenever we see “SCH-” in a Sammie device, we almost always assume that it’s coming to Big Red (which it usually does).  US Cellular sees an SCH device from time to time, but with this being new, we wouldn’t expect them to see it first over the nation’s biggest carrier.

So what could it be?  Well, we are thinking tablet.  The original Galaxy Tab 7 was SCH-I800 which could mean this is a follow-up to it.  Within the last couple of months, Samsung unveiled both 8.9″ and 7.7″ Tabs without carrier-specific plans, so this could easily be one of those.

My question is, do we really need another carrier-branded tablet?  Have any of them succeeded thus far?

    It says that it is a phone. I would love to have a 7″ galaxy tab that could also make calls via bluetooth! Smart phone and tablet all in one.

    It says it is a mobile phone.  I want the 5.3 inch Galaxy Note.

    Personally I don’t get wifi only tablets. Whats the use case for them? I use my tablets when out on business and at meetings most importantly. Or on the street or in transit. Without connection it’s useless. At home I got the computer. I do use one for the bed but that’s cause it got retired from the ‘away from home tablet’ status.

    What we need is a Honeycomb 3.2 from Samsung in a 7″ form factor that retails for $300 or less. Otherwise, buy the 10.1″ or wait for someone else to make one you like.

    They might even sell well slightly above $300 because of the Super AMOLED+ screen.

  • I would buy a 7inch tablet, but not a carrier specific one (I prefer WiFi only).

      Nook Color. Done and Done.

      Aside from the slower 800MHz single core, it’s a great little tablet. SetCPU can take care of the speed to some degree though.

    I would not mind smaller 4G tablet options on Verizon. My Tab 10.1 is nice, but I may consider a bit smaller choice to more easily carry.

  • Considering I dont mind being on contract with Verizon, if it is the 7″ tablet, I will have no choice but to pick it up for my wife.

    too many tablets to choose from coupled with tons of new tablets looming on the horizon will probably keep me out of the market for a while longer.

      After using the dual core GT10.1, the speed is awesome…and after reading the article on quad core, that will be even more awesome! So if you held out this long, might as well wait for the quad cores. Ill give my 10.1 to my brother or someone when I eventually upgrade 🙂
