Samsung, Apple Set to Take On Tablet With 12 Inch Or Bigger Displays [CONCEPTS]

    Few weeks back, reports came in that Apple could launch an iPad, as big as 13 inch display. Now new update has hit the news floor that the Cupertino tech giant and it's most fierce rival Samsung, both are actually working on 12 inch or probably bigger tabs.

    According to a new Digitimes report, information has come in from a supply chain that both companies are looking to move into an area not full of competition. Since there is a lower demand for 9 and 10 inch tablets in the market, possibilities are Apple and Samsung are looking at the 12 inch size as a solution to the decreasing demand, explained the report.


    However, analysts believe this could have an intense impact on the notebook sections, as Apple already has 11.6 and 13.3 inch MacBook Air selling in the international market.

    Moreover, if the tablet will 12 inch or bigger actually arrives soon, it will affect the tablet market at chances are it could also impact not only the notebook but also other hybrid tablet/PCs. Further, if Apple and Samsung manages to bring out the devices along with the variety of other accessories like docking system and keyboard and more, it will surely bring out the positive upgrade in other existing talets. Ultrabooks might have a good chance of making itself more popular if the 12 inch or bigger tablets start coming in.
