Samsung Prepping 10-inch Galaxy Tab For Weekend Debut?

The 7-inch Galaxy Tab didn't do Samsung any favors. And if this Pocket-Lint report is accurate, the remedy will come in the form of a 10-inch, Honeycomb-sporting Tab that the company will show off as early as Sunday.

It makes sense that Samsung would want a 10-inch Android tablet at some point, since its biggest competitors—the Motorola Xoom, specifically—are headed that direction. And the kickoff of Mobile World Congress would be as good a time as for the company to make its intentions known.

The rumored tablet will be thinner and lighter than its dwarven predecessor, says Pocket Lint, with dual-core Qualcomm guts, and 8MP camera, and will be available in black. There's no mention of price and timing, but if they can bring a snappier 10-inch Honeycomb tablet in for anywhere close to what they charge for the current Tab, Samsung should have an instant contender on its hands. Assuming that slate exists. [Pocket-Lint]
