A new report out of Korea claims that production of the 10.1-inch version of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 has been halted so that the tablet can be outfitted with a quad-core CPU. Netbooknews reports that the new version of the tablet has been codenamed "Espresso," and though actual details on the new processor haven't been revealed, it's possible that the device will use the same Exynos processor as the recently official quad-core Meizu MX. It's not known at this time whether or not the production stoppage will have any effect on the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's release schedule — as of now it's slated to launch in the US on May 13th.
