Will we see a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 at MWC?

Two leaks point to the possibility of a new Samsung tablet with stylus debuting this month at Mobile World Congress in Spain.

It's so hard to keep secrets on the Internet--just ask Samsung, which has been having a hard time keeping the (allegedly) upcoming Galaxy Note 10.1 under wraps today.

This morning, The Verge first noticed that an invite to a Samsung developer event at this month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona mentioned that the "Galaxy Note 10.1" will be exhibited in Spain this month, along with the "S Pen SDK." That's the development kit for the stylus that also accompanies the original Galaxy Note (a smartphone with a 5.3-inch screen that goes on sale for AT&T Sunday) .

But couldn't some poor soul within Samsung simply have typed Galaxy Note on the invitation where they meant to say Galaxy Tab? Sure, I'm all for Occam's Razor and the notion that the least complicated explanation is the most likely to be true in the absence of more convincing evidence.

However--cue the additional evidence--a casting call for a "Samsung Galaxy Commercial" also surfaced. Here's the first bit of it that I was able to pull up from the Google cache of the page, which has since disappeared from the live version of casting site Backstage.com:

OzCam US is casting a commercial, which will show a Galaxy Note 10.1 used for education, financial planning, and art. Jeff Lee, line prod. Shoot starts February in SoCal.

The commercial shooting this month and developer invite--if they're real and accurate--both point to a likely unveiling of a Galaxy Note 10-inch tablet with stylus debut at Mobile World Congress. Then again, it is February, and always possible that the new Android tablet saw its shadow and decided to stay underground for a few more months.
