Local general manager for Samsung Ireland, Gary Twohig recently mentioned by mistake that the company is planning a 10 inch follow-up to the 7 inch Galaxy Tab. The new tablet might be launched in the first half of 2011 and the manager just casually mentioned it, while talking about the Galaxy Tab.

All we know about this newcomer is that it’ll use the V8 JavaScript engine and possibly Android 3.0 (or further). A recent update on this piece of news reveals that Twohig is in fact not connected to this leak, but what’s certain is that the current Samsung tablet will get a Galaxy Tab 2 version in 2011.
