A newly circulating rumor potentially sheds new light on that Samsung tablet which was outed earlier this week by Emmanuele Silanesu, National Product and Marketing Manager for Samsung Australia’s IT division. Despite the insinuation by Silanesu that the device will feature an Intel Atom chip with some flavor of Windows on board, this latest rumor turns that whole scenario upside down by claiming the device will be powered by Android. Details are sketchy but the tablet could feature calling via a headset presumably using some implementation of VoIP, 3G and possibly even 4G connectivity, and an ARM-based architecture under the hood. We have a good six months to elucidate all the details on this slate device but this latest rumor paints a picture of a device which is much more desirable than a re-hashed Q1. Cross fingers and hope that this latest rumor is the one that rises to the top when all the wheat is separated from the chaff.
