Samsung may have finally realised their new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 cannot compete with the new iPad in its current form, so rumour is they’ve stopped production of the currently unreleased tablet to fit it with a new Quad-Core CPU, instead of a Dual-Core one. This will give them a one-up on the new iPad, at least in terms of marketing: “quad” sounds better than “dual”. The Exynos 4412 would seem like the logical choice for Samsung to implement — it’s Quad-Core at 1.5GHz.
It appears that the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be the only one of the Galaxy Tab 2 series to get the processor bump, as the 7.0 will stay with a Dual-Core chip. The Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is expected to launch sometime in June this year, when it still won’t be all that competitive.
