After a pretty slim tablet showing at the CES 2012, the MWC in Barcelona is expected to hit us with a bunch of new slates from some of the most important manufacturers in the world. Probably the most important of them all, Samsung, might come with two different tablet PCs at the 2012 MWC, if we are to believe the latest rumors, with both gadgets set to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
According to a leak picked up by Ameblo.jp, the two tablets are codenamed GT-P3100 and GT-P5100 and have just been Wi-Fi certified. The documents seem legit at a first sight, especially if we are to think about the past codenames used by Samsung.
For instance, the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus, released last fall, was first known as the GT-P6200, where GT stood up for Galaxy Tab, of course, and P identified the device’s category (tablet).
Of course, the rumor mill will start working at full power now, with all speculations pointing towards the release of two very different products. On one hand, there will most likely be a tablet with a 2560 x 1600 pixels Retina Display and a 2 GHz quad-core processor, while on the other hand Samsung might come with its own competitor for the Amazon Kindle Fire.
This suspected Fire competitor could come with medium-end tech specs, including a 1024 x 600 pixels resolution display, and will most definitely be made available to the wide public for a price tag of no more than 300 bucks.
Okay, let’s wrap up the rumors and speculations for the time being and give Samsung some extra time to prepare their strategy for this year’s MWC, as well as for the tablet war that might reach new heights in 2012. Don’t forget to hit us with a comment if you get a hold of new rumors or leaks, but also to give us your point of view about these two suspected Samsung slates.
