Mysterious Samsung Device Up For Gaming and Entertainment Award at CTIA, Any Guesses? (Updated)

We already know that Samsung is holding another of its Unpacked events at CTIA in just a couple of weeks, but details have yet to be released.  Whatever it is though, is sure to pack some sort of gaming or big-screened-multimedia punch.  The nominees for CTIA’s “Hot for the Holidays Awards” have been announced with a mysterious and unannounced Samsung product listed under the “Gamer & Entertainment Enthusiast” category.

If you look at the other items listed, you will see two of their tablets, so this could be the 7.7″ Tab that has yet to land in the states or as a few other sites have suggested, is the Galaxy Nexus.  Rumored to have a 4.65″ HD screen (Super AMOLED HD?), you would almost think that the next Nexus would have found its way into the “Gadget Guru” category – or would that have made it too obvious?  A big HD screen on a phone does scream, “Play games on me!” though.

Then again, wouldn’t Google want to unveil the next Nexus and not Samsung?  While I would love for this to be the Ice Cream Sandwiched Verizon beast, I’m not willing to put a ton of money on that, just yet.  The good news is that we will be there to find out.

Update:  Galaxy Tab 7.7 just cruised through the FCC.  Would not be surprised if this is the device they announce.

What do you guys think? Any guesses?

Cheers Jim!

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    Samsung needs to have a feature, where we can adjust the stupid saturation on their display.

    ,.. awesomee ..
    I just got a $827.89 Samsung Galaxy Tab for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

    Kellex, I need more unsubstantiated rumor and hype beasting about the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Droid Prime. I’m checking in 3 or 4 times a day and still can’t get my fix man. You gotta give me more. I need more! Ahhhgggg!

      saturated display and plastic feel. Do you need to more more?

  • It’s the Samsung Focus S.  Xbox Live, lots of related games, remember?

    Windows Phone may not have many games, but it’s more explicitly focused on gaming. That and the Galaxy S II is already covered in the Globetrotter section.

    “Then again, wouldn’t Google want to unveil the next Nexus and not Samsung?”

    Couldn’t Google be at the Samsung event, and announce it there together?

  • ssjnimma

    could be the Galaxy Note as well… just a thought…

      Probably is.

      • Juan Moreno

        But why would they use this event to launch something which has already been unveiled? They wouldn’t be sending out these invites for something this predictable; Guess we will wait and see.

    Absolutely not the Galaxy Nexus. Sorry. First Google takes care of that. Second it wouldn’t be under gamer and entertainment with the Tabs. Sounds like either the tab 7.7 or Note, or Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 or something else.

      I really hope they announce the 7.7 price and release date for the US. That display must be amazing in person, I can’t wait to get one.

    Well since they just announced the Galaxy LTE with 4.65″ hd screen for Korea I would say that is a safe bet. 

  • AcMonster

    Have you seen the Samsung LTE 4.65 device they released in Korea today?  the Galaxy nexus could just be a rebrand of this: http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/26/samsung-announces-galaxy-s-ii-lte-and-galaxy-s-ii-hd-lte-handset/

        Nice link Kellex ! i was going to ask you if there is an application or something that you can do on the sammy’s devices to make the color more natural? Colors like the htc display, droid, droid x, droid 2 and iphone, which has the best display 🙂 I have to be realistic. I know you hate iphone but their display owwww
