New 10 Inch Galaxy Tab Could Arrive in 2011

Next year, Samsung could launch a 10 inch Galaxy Tab. The news comes from local General Manager Gary Twohig of Samsung in Ireland. He added the information to the bottom of a news story about places you’ll be able to pick up a Galaxy Tab in Ireland.

It isn’t clear exactly when the larger tablet will become available, if at all, and it isn’t known what operating system will run. We assume Android will be the choice with perhaps Android 3.0 Gingerbread being the option.

Reasons believed for not launching a 10 inch tablet at the same time as the 7 inch Galaxy Tab is probably related to Android 2.2 not being optimised for the larger screen. With a 7 inch screen, some say that Samsung has already stretched the OS too far.

We’ll certainly keep an eye on this one as so far, the Galaxy Tab seems to be the only real competition to the Apple iPad.
