It seems the original Galaxy Tab will be the only tablet from Samsung to sport a 7-inch display. Dr WP Hong from Samsung who addressed the media at Mobile World Congress confirmed that Samsung is working to expand its tablet portfolio but newer tablets won’t have a 7-inch display.
He reckons “tablets should be bigger than 7-inch” and “10.1-inch is the best size for a tablet,” considering they recently announced a larger sized Galaxy Tab 10.1 running Android Honeycomb OS.
However, Wong did hint that this mid-size segment could be fulfilled by smartphones since display size of new phones are getting bigger.
As for original Tab owners, all is not lost. Wong said they’re “discussing internally on the next update, but we haven’t made a decision yet. In the future, when we have made a decision, we will let you know.”
