Samsung Close to iPad Alternative

I found an interesting article that gives a very detailed description of the newest Samsung tablet that is set to release.  The new Samsung tablet will have an 11.8 inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 making for 256ppi.  This new screen will put Samsung’s tablet in the running to rival Apple’s Retina display.  To put this into perspective, the new iPad has a 9.7 inch screen with a 264ppi.  With this very small difference in ppi there should be no distinguishable difference in image quality.  To power all of these graphics the Samsung is going to have a powerhouse processor called the Cortex-A15 which will sit in the Exynos 5 Dual chipset.   It is a dual core chip that Samsung has been raving a about and claims that one A15 core is between 1.5x and 2x faster than the A9 that NVIDIA is using currently.  Keep in mind that is just one core of the two!  That is going to be a blazing fast chip and I’m excited to see it action.

The tablet is being called the P10 and is believed to be arriving sometime in 2012.  This tablet has the potential to set Samsung apart from Apple by allowing them to shed that copycat stigma that they have been facing in their recent court battle with Apple.

Samsung is moments away from a true iPad alternative – SlashGear.
