Samsung Reportedly Testing 7-Inch Galaxy Note Tablet

Samsung appears to be creating a direct competitor to Google's best-selling Nexus 7 tablet, as well as Apple's iPad Mini, with reports saying that the Korean electronics giant is testing a 7-inch Galaxy Note tablet.

Appearing on two different test certificate listings from the DLNA Alliance, the unannounced device has two model numbers: GT-N5100 and GT-N5110.

To add credence to the existence of a 7-inch Galaxy Note tablet, the "GT-N" model number is also utilized by Samsung's existing Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets.

The DLNA Alliance describes the hardware as "Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 OS upgrade version derivative model - Ice Cream Sandwich version - Tablet". Moreover, a Wi-Fi certification for the same GT-N5110 model number brands the product as a "Wi-Fi and other" tablet integrating dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n and Wi-Fi Direct support.

The certificate also mentions a third tablet model number, the GT-T8025, which may be a separate product from the 7-inch Samsung tablet.

Samsung itself is the developer of Google's upcoming 10-inch Nexus 10 tablet, with the device due for a November 13 launch alongside the Nexus 4.

    Typical Samsung. 4.8" GS3, 5.0" Note, 7.0", 7.7", 8,9" and 10.1" Tabs and now Note 7.0"? And how many different versions of Galaxy smart phones are there?

    I guess if you can't figure out what customers want just throw 101 devices out there and see what sticks. What a waste of R&D and tooling costs.

    Because we all know how successful the Tab was. No doubt this is the same junk.

What a waste of R&D and tooling costs.I kinda have to agree that Sammy is releasing too many sizes of basically the same thing. However, perhaps there is a market for this...somewhere?

    I love my Galaxy Note 10.1, but I feel that 7 inches is too small. Honestly, I think the note tablet would have been better at 12 or 13 inches. I would definitely be interested in a supersized note, but a small 7 inch one just doesn't get my attention.

    I'm happy with the 10" designs as they seem like an appropriat step up from my phone. My Galaxy Note II gets the job done well. I love that thing.

  • I'd probably get one too, I own galaxy note phone and find it a bit small for taking notes during meetings. iPad mini has better handwriting apps like noteshelf, but stylus don't work as well as a galaxy note. So note 7 is best! 10 inches too big to be lugging around to meetings...
