Samsung testing giant 18.4″ tablet

Samsung is working on an 18.4″ tablet, according to a rumor posted by Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowhereelse. The tablet is reportedly being tested in South Korea with 7 prototype units that will be destroyed upon the completion of testing. We can see that the hardware costs around € 465. If Samsung were to release this tablet it would be by far their largest ever. The 12.2″ variant of the Galaxy Note Pro/Note Pro is the largest Android tablet we’ve seen, and many criticized Samsung for releasing a tablet that is simply too large to be portable.

It is certainly possible that Samsung could choose to release the tablet only in South Korea and Asian markets. Most US consumers are accustomed to tablets around the 7-10″ size, a standard set by Apple’s iPad early on in the tablet market. I personally own a 12.2″ Galaxy Note Pro and find it to be an incredibly useful device. Larger tablets make consuming media while traveling incredibly easy. A large tablet with S-pen functionality also makes it easy to edit documents and work on the road. I could be convinced to make an 18.4″ tablet part of my tech arsenal, anyone else interested?

    Definitely not buying this, I see no usefulness for it? Maybe useful for graphic designers though.

I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
