SiliconRepublic ran a piece explaining which carriers in Ireland will be selling the Galaxy Tab. At the bottom of the article (the very last sentence), they nonchalantly mention that Samsung country manager Gary Twohig says they'll be releasing a 10" Tablet sometime in the first half of 2011. The only other details included in the article: it will run Android, and rock the V8 JavaScript engine.

Engadget speculates that Samsung may be waiting for Gingerbread or Honeycomb, which certainly sounds like a fair assessment to me. After all, Google recently said that Android 2.x isn't designed with tablets in mind, but Android 3.x would be.


In any case, Samsung seems have hit their Android stride in the past few months, with some pretty high-profile, well reviewed, and highly successful product launches. Based on initial impressions, the Tab seems to be a decent piece of kit - and hopefully the 10" tablet keeps the trend going.
