Early this week Samsung revealed they had an “exciting special announcement” coming tomorrow in Austin at 4 PM CST. This led to all kinds of wild speculation (that we love) and today Chris Hall of Pocket-Lint reported that Samsung would be announcing the rumored Galaxy Tab 11.6.
That would have been a nice response to yesterday’s new iPad announcement, but Samsung just sent out a new press release to inform us their big news is a demo of Angry Birds Space on the Galaxy Note. Samsung and Rovio will be on hand to demo the game, which features exclusive content for Galaxy Note users.
Back to the Galaxy Tab 11.6, we still expect some kind of announcement will be made in the coming months. I predicted it would be announced at Mobile World Congress, but I was wrong.
Rumored specs of the Galaxy Tab 11.6 include:
11.6 inch display with 2560 x 1600 WXQGA resolution
2 GHz Exynos 5250 (2x ARM Cortex-A15 CPUs, quad-core ARM Mali-T604 GPU)
We will be in Austin tomorrow to check out Samsung’s event, so check back for some hands-on video of Angry Birds Space. If you will be in the Austin area next week, don’t forget to come party with us at the gdgt Live event on Monday. Samsung will also there, so you might get to play the new Angry Birds if you show up.
