Talking about Samsung’s future plans related to tablets and smartphones, J.K. Shin, president of the company’s mobile division unit, mentioned that there are talks with US and South Korean carriers for the introduction of an LTE-capable Android tablet.
The Wall Street Journal, which interviewed J.K. Shin, doesn’t provide further details about the tablet. However, I assume this is Verizon’s SCH-I905 / Galaxy Tab 10.1, of which we’ve heard a few weeks ago.
The LTE tablet could be also released by MetroPCS, since the regional carrier is also offering LTE services.
Samsung hopes to sell a total of 7.5 million Android tablets around the world before the end of the year.
The South Korean company also talked about Bada – its own mobile OS – saying it isn’t abandoning it (no one thought it would, anyway), despite the fact that it’s focusing more on Android.
