We first heard about the possibility of a 12-inch Android-powered Samsung tablet back in June, when Korean-based ET News reported that the massive tab would feature an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution. Besides the resolution, all we knew at the time was that the tablet allegedly would arrive in the not-too-distant future.
According to a market research firm IDC, Samsung Electronics sold 8.1 million units of tablet PCs in the second quarter of this year, up 2.1 million units from a year ago, with its market share rising to 18.9 percent worldwide, a 2.5-fold jump year on year.
That same report speculated that the display could match the resolution of Google's smaller Nexus 10, which is manufactured by Samsung.
Apple is also reportedly considering larger tablets. Needless to say, if both Samsung and Apple come out with larger tablets, others will follow suit.
