We have heard a few reports over the past few days regarding some odd sized devices coming from Samsung. We first saw these specs and this roadmap last week and Samsung later denied it, but now we have the same specs showing up again and with launch dates too. I have a feeling this might just be the real deal.
Launch dates are prone to changes but I’m liking what I’m seeing either way. They are listed in weeks and we are currently in week 33 (W33). The only thing I don’t like is the Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone listed is still 15 weeks away according to the leak. That makes a possible October launch sound not to possible now doesn’t it?

According to these reports we should be seeing the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 with an AMOLED display and Android 3.2 Honeycomb very shortly but sadly I don’t see anything about the Galaxy Tab 8.9 inch many are still waiting for. The most impressive and important one is at the bottom, the GT-I9250. This could very well be the Samsung Nexus Prime. We have seen reports about the AMOLED display being ready to go in larger sizes, as well as plenty of leaks that Samsung will rock the Nexus Prime and currently trying to get Verizon to carry it.
All of this is really exciting and I can’t wait to see more. We originally heard ICS would launch around the holidays but recent rumors are saying October to compete with the iPhone 5. Then we see something like that last phone rumored for week 48 and that lines up better with initial ICS reports of a holiday release. Either way I just want to see these bad boys out in the wild already. Can you say Nexus!
