Samsung has already hinted at several major announcements that will be made during the IFA Tradeshow in Berlin, which kicks off on September 1st, and one savvy Android user already discovered what’s in store. According to This is my next, an Android developer noticed three logos inside Samsung’s Mobile Unpacked APK file. The logos clearly name the GALAXY Tab 7.7, the Wave 3 and the GALAXY Note. We have heard rumors that Samsung will launch a new 7-inch tablet, possibly with a new Super AMOLED HD display and Honeycomb in tow, and we’re definitely excited to hear more about the GALAXY Tab 7.7. The Wave 3 will no doubt be a Samsung bada-powered device but it is still unclear exactly what the GALAXY Note is. The South Korea-based company just announced its new GALAXY family of Android smartphones on Wednesday, so it is possible the GALAXY Note is another tablet. The good news is we have just one week to wait before we find out. More →
