Samsung Mobile Unpacked CTIA

The spring CTIA event is just a few short weeks away, and Samsung Mobile's starting to tease its next "Unpacked" event. The event at MWC in early February was dubbed "Letters From the World," and up next we have "What's your Tab life?" with the number(s) 78910 underneath.

We're betting that has something to do with the perfect tablet size. Sammy's already got the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab, of course, and it unveiled a 10-inch Honeycomb version in Barcelona. Will we get 8- and 9-inch versions to go along with them? We'd probably bet against that, but stranger things have happened. (Update: Yeah, an 8.9-inch tablet could well be it.) Find out March 22, we guess. [Facebook]

Samsung asks: What's your Tab life?; next 'Unpacked' event at CTIA


I'm putting £100 on it being an 8.9inch tab. Though I think a few people have said it's a bit of an odd size and doesn't fit well between the 7 inch for portability and the 10 for screen real estate. Maybe they don't think Honeycomb will be so good on the 7inch size.

Only time will tell.

Without having the experience of holding an 8.9" tablet, I'd guess it's the perfect size for me. 7" is a little small for viewing, 10.1 is a little big to type on. 8.9" is the size where someone like me can still thumb type without much trouble, but doesn't sacrifice much real estate.

Hopefully, it's also ~$50-$75 cheaper :p

The iPad is too big and heavy at 9.7inch... the Xoom is bigger and heavier(though not by that much)... I need something smaller with a good screen size. 8.9 seems to be that spot... 7inches is too small for Honeycomb I think.

I dig the 7" size tabs. It just feels right for one handed use & it fits in my pocket. 8.9" might be the limit, i think the larger Tabs seem huge & at that point id rather have a laptop.

by the time this tablet comes out, it may not be much of a stretch to wait for news on quad-core tablets in Q3/Q4 2011.
