If you’re watching closely the iPad 3 rumor round-up, most probably the first feature could hit the popular slate was the Retina display that was already present on the iPhone 4/4S. Accordingly, one of the most formidable competitor –Samsung is rumored to be prepping for their own Retina-resolution tablet that will feature 2560 x 1600 resolution screen. This is same resolution of the Retina display if it will hit the iPad 3 early next year. And to preempt Samsung is said to launch the device just before iPad 3 creates momentum next year in the market.
The Samsung tablet is claimed to be slightly larger than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and could run Exynos 5250 CPU with dual-cores at 2GHz. Basically rounding the iPad 3 and the new Sammy’s slate could have a minimal difference in hardware performance as mainly iOS and Android almost shares same ecosystem.
Galaxy Tab could be one of the promising opponent of iPad in the market and next year it could step up to something that could even sweeten the tablet market, let us just wait.
