Despite an onslaught of Apple lawsuits, Samsung is looking to beat the Cupertino company’s release of a retina-resolution tablet. According to a trusted source from BGR, Samsung is set to launch an 11.6-inch tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich by early next year. The device will most likely be showcased at Mobile World Congress in February.
According to the source, even though the tablet features a larger display than the Tab 10.1, the device will be “barely larger” due to a thinner bezel. The new tablet will feature an ultra high-res display at a whopping 2560 x 1600 resolution with a 2GHz dual-core Exynos 5250 processor. Samsung’s table will also feature Android Beam for easy syncing with the Galaxy Nexus (if it is released by then) and a special wireless docking mode for gaming on HDTVs, which should help Samsung compete with Apple TV, Airplay and more.
