Samsung is said to working on a new 10-inch tablet. This high-end tablet has apparently been code-named 'Roma'.

SamMobiles via TechBlog.gr reports that the new tablet will resemble Google Nexus 10. It is expected to come with a 10.1-inch display with resolution of 2560X1600 pixels and a pixel density of 299ppi. The Roma tablet will allegedly be powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Exynos 5 processor along with 2 GB of RAM. It will come with 16GB of in-built storage, which can be expanded by up to 128GB via a microSD card.

For camera, there is a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.9-megapixel one on the front. The tablet is likely to measure 257X177.7X 8.4mm and will support 4G LTE as connectivity option. Other connectivity options include 3G, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 and Micro-USB. It will come with a 9,000mAh battery and will weigh about 583 grams. Samsung Roma tablet is expected to run on the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system.

As of now there is no word on when this device will see the light of the day or what will it cost.
Samsung is also rumoured to be working on Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. As per earlier news reports, Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will come in two variants. SM-T3100 is allegedly the 3G version of the 16GB Galaxy Tab 3, while the SM-T3110 will be the Wi-Fi version. Both these tablets will reportedly come in White colour.

Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will come with a 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels. It will be only 6.95mm thick and weigh 330 grams. The tablet is expected to run Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) out of the box.

The tablet will allegedly come with a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. It is expected to have a 4,500 mAh battery.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 on the other hand will sport a 10.1-inch display. The recent rumours suggest that the display resolution of Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will be 1280X800 pixels while the earlier reports suggested 2560X1600 pixel display. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is likely to come with a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and 2GB of RAM. It will have 16GB of internal storage, which will be expandable through a microSD card.

Not bad. I would still take the Sony over this... and pretty much anything else out there today.

1.5 Quad Core vs. 1.7 Dual
495g vs. 583g
Still thinner and still waterproof

I though about that the other day when I had to stuff my tab under my shirt to keep it dry when going from the car to the office. With the Sony I could put it over my head to block the rain.

I really am not a Sony fanboi at all. I know it may sound like it. Just giving credit where's it's due. Sony is still the one to beat. This just shows how well they decked it out. It is still nicer then just announced Sammy tabs.

Sammy will sell more as Sony won't advertise much if at all...
