Samsung Galaxy Q tablet-phone convergence device set for 2011?

Yahoo Korea has reported that Samsung are set to reveal a new device to wedge between its Galaxy smartphone and tablet lines

According to their industry sources, the product will be revealed at IFA 2011 in September, packing a 5.3-inch touchscreen.

Other specifications are sparse, but include the it-makes-sense idea of a SAMOLED screen similar to the sumptuous one found on the Galaxy S2, which has an expansive (by phone standards) 4.3-inch screen.

The mole has also suggested that the hybrid Galaxy Q will arrive with both have both 3G WCDMA connectivity along with next generation 4G connectivity. Not a big deal for us UK, who look set to wait until 2013 for the high-speed network infrastructure, but it could make some Americans very excited.

Whether the new device would still be able to perform voice-calls (last year’s Galaxy Tab will be able to) still isn’t known. The closest device to compare it to would be the Dell Streak, called by many as an oversized smartphone, it manages to squeeze into large jacket pocket. And has some awesome Japanese adverts.

Industry event IFA 2011 is set for September, so we hope to hear more information on this mid-sized Android device then, if not before.
