    Oh, I don't doubt they will make an 18.4 inch tablet but why oh why would you make a giant low spec tablet???
    1.8 GB RAM
    25 GB Storage
    Display 1,920x1,080 pixels,
    1.6 gigahertz Samsung Exynos 7 octa-core processor
    2-megapixel front-facing camera.

    Ref: Samsung 18.4-inch tablet specs leak online - CNET

    You have all this space to work with to make a totally awesome tablet and you put nothing in it worth even mentioning. Every phone made in the last two years has better specs than this. This is beyond absurd.

    Now I do get not making a greater than 300 dpi screen as there would be so many pixels on it the performance would be slower than a snail painting the screen. Which of course is why you wouldn't use such low end components.

    I guess it would be ok for a 90 year old with bad eyesight that wanted a big screen to see. Hmm, what's that come out to 1920x1080 on a 18.4 inch screen ... three dots per inch??? :) man that going to be grainy... slight exaggeration... about 120 dpi

    Samsung say it ain't so... This is almost as bad as those $49 bargain tablets that are anything but a bargain.
