    So Sammobile has uncovered a DLNA certification for the Samsung GT-N5100 and GT-N5110

    According to them the Nxxxx is codenames is usually attributed to Galaxy Note devices. With these two it seems they will be a 7-9 inch size tablet with Note features and S-Pen.

    according to theandroidsoul site the 5100 would be the international version while the 5110 would be the LTE version.

    Nothing is certain at this point but it most likely will be shown off at CES 2013.

    Sammy makes a size for everybody so this wouldn't surprise me. Actually it shouldn't surprise anyone. :D

    If I had seen this article prior to my buying the ATIV tablet PC, I might've held off. No regrets though, as the Windows PC tablet is more ideal for my needs, but this one would've been crazy tempting.

    Okay, so because of the unfortunate circumstances, looks like I'll wait it out until after the new year to pick up my tablet. The ATIV 700t is still my top choice, just because of the Microsoft Office uses, but a 7 inch Note is exactly what I was, we'll see what type of deals come up during the holidays.

    Just last night I was telling a friend that I definitely don't need another tablet. Well, I don't, but, I didn't say I didn't want another one either. :p

    Perhaps November 18th could be a launch/pre-order date (start date of SAMSUNG'S BLACK FRIDAY promotion).

    My only question is, if the Note 10.1 is $499 / $549, I wonder where pricing will be for the 7 (or 8 or 9 or whatever they go with) inchers?

    Man, it's going to be really tough deciding between waiting for the smaller Note tablet vs. going forward with the ATIV 700t. Pricing is definitely in the smaller Note's favor, but productivity for work/personal purposes is hands down with the Windows PC tablet.

    Hmmm...with this newest article, a 7-9 inch Note would definitely be more in consideration, even if it requires a subscription to Microsoft 360, it'd suit my needs just fine:

    Microsoft Office for Android will require Office 365 subscription

    Blessing in disguise that the last deal fell through because this will likely be way easier on my pocket book...hahaha.

    Hoping that the speculation of Spring release is wrong and this comes out at the beginning of 2013 (or even better, have a surprise release right before Christmas)!

    I have no doubt that I can use my remaining Best Buy Gift cards on this and I've decided that I don't need the full ATIV tablet/laptop for now, so this would be perfect for me!

    If the Note 3 is 6.3 inches, I don't see why they'd even bother offering the 7 inch note, unless...the GT-N5100 ends up being a 8 inch tablet?

    6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note III rumored for 2013

    This delineation looks much better, than if the smaller Note tablet stays a 7 inch tablet like the Galaxy Tab and Tab 2 (So hopefully they went with 8 inch):
    11.3 inch (ATIV Windows Tablet/Laptop)
    10.1 inch (Android Galaxy Note Tablet)
    8.0 inch (Android Galaxy Note Mini Tablet)
    6.3 inch (Android Galaxy Note 3 Phone)
    5.6 inch (Android Galaxy Note 2 Phone)
    5.3 inch (Android Galaxy Note Phone)

    You're talking to yourself again Drex. That's 4 back to back. :p
    I don't know, I still stand by what I think that the 6.3 won't be the Note 3 but rather a inbetween device. The 8.0 inch Galaxy Note Mini Tablet may be possible but but I see the 6.3 being that device. I seriously do not think that the Note 3 will be 6.3 inches. Going from a 5.3 to a 5.6 is a good increase while keeping it a bit more slender. but going from a 5.6 to a 6.3, that is way to much of a jump from one year to the next.

    I hope your suspicions are right, TS. I just don't like the thought of the physical dimensions getting any bigger than what it currently is. I've grown accustomed to the Note 2 as is and I have no doubt that a phone that gets any bigger would be too uncomfortable for my tastes.

    Only thing that I'd support an increase in screen size for is if the dimensions of the phone stayed the same (and maybe Samsung goes with on screen keys, rather than the current setup). Even with onscreen keys, seems like the screen size couldn't be increased by that much, considering the curved edges of the phone.

    I really want the smaller tablet to be at least 7 inches. Anything less than that, I'll likely just wait for the 2nd generation of the Note 10.1 or wait until the ATIV 700t goes on sale.

    Posted in a Note 2 thread about this, but wanted to post in here also, in case anybody was in the same position as me, considering the ATIV 500T or 700T vs. the Android Note 10.1 or the GT-N5100.

    On the ATIV 500T on display at Best Buy, the S-Pen did not have the same air view functions that we get on the Android tablets, including the Note 2. That includes picture previews, video preivew, etc.

    Samsung GT-N5100 (Note 7) turns up in GLBenchmark result

    I just hope it releases before MWC. My Silver Premiere rewards ends in February and I want to be able to swoop this up while I'm still eligible. My Best Buy gift cards are waiting around to spend on this thing!...LOL.

    And this has definitely become the #1 choice for me. I tried out the ATIV 500T (Windows 8) tablet at Best Buy. The integrated S-Pen doesn't have the hover functions like the Note lines on Android. On top of that, I'm realizing more and more that I don't necessarily need Microsoft Windows or Office on my mobile devices, since I have already gotten so many "office" compatible apps for free on Android.

    I tweet back to him stating that its missing the dual speakers which a device that size should have dual speakers.

    LOL...Initially, when I was considering getting another laptop, the Ativ 700t was at the top of my list. The thing that swayed me away initially was the fraudulent deal that I was gullible enough to believe to be true.

    Then TS had started this thread, so I knew there was at the very least, very good hints that Samsung would release a smaller version of the 10.1 (which is ideally what I wanted anyway).

    Then, after being able to test out the Ativ 500t out at Best Buy swayed me away even more because the S Pen functions on Windows 8 were not even close to what can be done on the Note tablets.

    Lastly, I started thinking about how expensive Windows software was, and while there are ways around the prices, I just felt that I had enough resources through Android to get things accomplished at much cheaper prices (including the various keyboard docking options out there). In particular, Microsoft Office costs way too much for what it brings to the table and I already got 3 paid Office programs that allow me to do what I would need to do on Android (and I didn't pay anything for those apps because I got them through the Amazon deal of the day, for free).

    So, this has become my #1 big tech purchase priority for the year. I just hope it's not too long after MWC that this thing will be released. It already went through wi-fi certification, so I'm hoping that release will be immediately after it's announced at MWC. If it ventures into months after announcement, there might be something else on the horizon that could steer me away, including the potential follow-up to the 10.1 Note.

    I think the full-version W8 tablets are just about ready for release (if they're not already out) & I've seen a few reviews that were quite favorable. Crazy expensive though, enough so to take a pass on it for now.

    But, back to the GN8:
    This will be on my list as well,the size is perfect,as someone else mentioned, large enough to be functional/practical for desktop work,yet, portable enough to not question whether you grab this & leave the laptop &/or the 10"+ tablet/netbook at home.

    Now, to find a good home for the XYBOARD 10.1.....…........ :D

    Yeah, I loved the size of the HTC Flyer, but hated how the stylus worked (or didn't, for that matter). The S-Pen kills it, as far as accuracy is concerned. It's because of the N8, that I'm re-considering purchasing a HM5100 bt s pen.

    I hope Samsung doesn't wait 6 months to officially release the Note 8. If the follow the pattern that they did last year, they announced the Note 10.1 at MWC and then didn't formally release it until mid-August 2012!
