Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 set for quad-core boost?

Samsung could be about to go quad-core crazy. Reports on Tuesday suggest that it will re-equip the new Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with a super-fast processor, although that could mean delays

 

The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 may be further delayed, following reports that the Korean giant wants to upgrade the device with a quad-core processor.

Production is said to have been halted on the tablet, which had been earmarked for a May 13 launch, with the company now keen to improve upon the 1GHz dual-core processor slated to ship within the device.

The upgrade could see the debut of Samsung's long-touted Exynos 4412 quad-core processor, which is also rumoured to provide the Samsung Galaxy S3's muscle when it launches on May 3rd.

The next-generation Galaxy Tab was announced at Mobile World Congress back in February and had been originally scheduled to arrive in March, but problems, including the implementation of Android 4.0, saw it pushed back to late April and then into May. US tablet-fanciers have been promised the device on May 13th, and a UK launch was expected shortly thereafter.

Will this upgrade delay the launch further, while Apple new iPad 3 tablets continue to fly off the shelves?

Netbook News, also reports that Samsung is plotting the upgrade for the Galaxy Note 10.1 device also, but the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will supposedly remain unchanged.
