Samsung teases with trim tablet snap
Camera never lies, right?
Samsung has posted a teaser shot for its upcoming 8.9in Galaxy Tab, which for some reason interweb pundits believe proves the tablet will be a skinny affair.
All you can really tell from the shot is that the gadget will have an earphones socket and a textured back.
You can make anything look thin if you photograph it from the right angle.
Of course, there's no reason why the 8.9in Tab won't be particularly thin. If Apple can take the iPad from 13mm down to 9mm, Samsung should be able to do the same with its offering.
Whatever Samsung has come up with, the beans will be spilled on 22 March. ®
It seems that some Samsung engineer has figured out that the cost of slimming the whole device down to 8-9mm can be easily avoided... by fitting a 6.35mm headphone jack to a thicker tablet and photographing from further away!
And knowing photoshop...
And knowing photoshop allows you to derive the annual salary of a Samsung marketdroid...
Could this belief have come about, mayhap, due to the extremely clear bulge that can be seen in the lines of the thing to accomodate said 3.5mm headphone socket?
This tablet is slim. Those tablets are faaar away.....
thickness of edge ≠ thickness of tablet
"Knowing the size of the circular hole allows you to measure the thickness of the device."
And therefore, the Apple Air that I saw a picture of, really is only 3mm thick as can be seen from the USB connector?
