The Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be the obvious smaller sibling to the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It weighs less than a pound, is 8.6 millimeters thin (the world’s thinnest tablet), an 8.9-inch touchscreen with Gorilla Glass and a 1280×800, a dual-core 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, Android 3.1 Honeycomb with the Touchw
iz UX pre-loaded (including all of the Samsung Hubs), a back-facing 3 megapixel camera with 720pHD video recording, a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera, and finally 802.11n/b/g WiFi. The usual mobile security features, enterprise, and home office user apps and settings are all included, including Find My Mobile, which per-usual, tracks and details the location of the Galaxy Tab 8.9.
It will be available on October 2 (your’s truly birthday) at $469.99 for the 16GB model. Hands-on impressions coming soon.
Update: We’ve got hands-on! The Galaxy Tab 8.9 is just about everything I loved about the original 10.1, in both WiFi and 4G LTE flavors, but this time the WiFi 8.9 is lighter and just as capable as the latter, because the specs are just the same, sans the screen size of course. All in all, expect a review in the next couple of days, but in the meantime, check out the gallery below.
