It appears that a new dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab may be being developed by Samsung. This comes as most reports have been centered on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3, which is expected to be unveiled by the company soon. For the moment Samsung already has a five-inch, seven-inch, eight-inch, nine-inch, and ten-inch models of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The upcoming model of the dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab will reportedly feature a pair of seven-inch screens that can be folded and may look like a pair of BlackBerry PlayBooks or Amazon Kindle Fire devices placed positioned on top of each other. The reports on the upcoming design for a new dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab were based on a patent that was filed earlier in the month.
The image on the patent for the supposed new dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab also included a remote control, which can be inserted under the hinge assembly of the device.
There is a possibility that the reported new dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab will be aimed at business consumers where one screen will be used as a virtual keyboard while the second screen will feature the application used by the owner of the device.
However some industry watchers are doubtful that Samsung will be releasing a dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab following the release of a similar product by Sony which was not widely received in the market. On the other hand the poor showing of the Sony Tablet P as well as the Kyocera Echo may also have been due to its inadequate marketing for the device.
According to some industry watchers, Samsung may not market the device as a productivity device since the device may not be designed for corporate users although it may facilitate work on a document better compared to a conventional tablet. The foldable design for a new dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab may also offer a better option when it comes to display size and portability while flexible screens are not yet available in the market.
Despite the doubts of some industry watchers, a new dual screen Samsung Galaxy Tab may become successful if the company will add a good enough software for the device along with a price tag that is reasonable enough for consumers.
