As PhoneArena spotted recently, the tablet has quietly been filed under the name of the Samsung SM-P905 at the FCC.
Precious few details are available in the way of specs although the tablet’s diagram points to a stylus port for Samsung’s acclaimed S-Pen. A purported benchmark test from AnTuTu would seem to indicate that the tablet has an impressive 2560 x 1600 resolution display, the quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of storage and dual-facing cameras (8MP snapper on the rear, 2MP camera on the front).

Specifications from GFXBench seemingly reveal an Amazon tablet with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, Android 4.2.2 and the Qualcomm Adreno 330 graphics processor, which would likely mean that the device would run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 chipset.
These specs appear to correlate with a recent report from Boy Genius Report. Citing “multiple trusted sources”, the tech blog last month claimed that Amazon is to launch three new Kindle Fire tablets this fall, including an 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display and a Snapdragon 800 processor.
Sources familiar with the company’s plans told The Verge that the launch event is pencilled in for September 26 and say that the tablet, which is apparently codenamed ‘Vanquish’, will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor and Windows RT.
The slate will also apparently offer LTE support and be made available in the US through AT&T.
The specs and launch data look consistent when judged against recent reports from the Microsoft News blog and Nokiapoweruser.

Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z was named Tablet of the Year by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), Europe’s largest editorial multimedia organization.
The $499, 10-inch Android tablet has a number of unique features: it’s water-resistant up to one meter (for 30 minutes), relatively lightweight at 494g, and almost up-to-date with the next-to-latest version of Android (4.2.2 Jelly Bean). That’s a set of features few Android tablets can beat, though it’s also worth nothing that while the Xperia Tablet Z offers capable performance, it’s powered by an aging Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.
