Samsung is to keep the heat on Apple and Google with a new tablet device that was revealed in court documents, while a mystery tablet has been spotted on an HP advertisement.
Court documents from Apple and Samsung's patent case have revealed that the South Korean firm is working on a tablet codenamed "P10", according to the Verge.
The "P10" tablet is said to include 4G LTE connectivity and an 11.8in display at a 2560 x 1600 resolution.
Samsung supplies LCDs and AMOLEDs [Active-Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode – another type of screen], and the screen for its next tablet, according to the documents, will compete with the new iPad's Retina display, which has a resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels.
Meanwhile, HP has released a YouTube advertisement entitled Make it Matter that features an unknown tablet that could be the first HP Windows 8 device, scheduled for release on 26 October.
The short clip shows a tablet with a silver back, a black bar on the top and a HP logo in the middle.
A user comment below the video suggests that this will be a Windows 8 powered device:
"The tablet shown in at the end of the commerical is Windows 8 full as in not RT. So it's a full powered Intel computer that you can hold in your hand like an iPad," wrote YouTube user obwoho.
It has a different look to the HP TouchPad, which did not fare well in the tablet market. The TouchPad ran on webOS and was sold at a discounted rate when HP suspended its production line amid poor sales.
HP has so far not commented on the device.
