Samsung Stops production of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (Espresso) to upgrade it with a Quadcore Processor
A Korean Samsung insider informed netbooknews.com, that Samsung has stopped the production of the GT-P 5100 aka Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 so that it can be upgraded with a Quadcore cpu! Internally the tablet has the code name “Espresso” which actually clears up some rumors about a new tablet that was going to be released under this name, it was so obvious, was laughing my ass off reading those who claimed that those are two new separate tablets.
They were not given any details about the specifics of the processor, so we are unsure if it will be running the Exynos 4412. Another unknown is if there are going to be any changes to the US launch of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
This is not the only tablet that Samsung thought worthy of the upgrade as the Galaxy Note 10.1 is also meant to be getting a Quad-core processor. If you’re more a fan of the 7 inch tablet size, we’ve got no love for you as the Galaxy Tab 2 7 will be keeping its dualcore processor.
One way or another, at least we are almost 100% sure that there are no mysterious tablets from Samsung called Espresso.
