Earlier today Samsung took the wraps off their latest Galaxy Tab tablet, the Galaxy Tab 8.9, and we just received the official press photos from Samsung which shows this new ultra thin tablet.
The Samsung galaxy Tab 8.9 measures just 8.6mm thick, making it thinner than the new iPad 2, and it weighs in at just 470g, and it comes with Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb and a custom Touchwiz UI from Samsung.
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 features an 8.9 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, and it comes with a 1GHz dual core processor and it is capable of playing back full HD video in 1080p
Other specifications include a three megapixel camera on the back and a two megapixel camera on the front, there will be two different models, one with Wifi and one with WiFi and HSPA+.
The WiFi models pricing has been announced, and they seem pretty competitive when compared to other tablets available on the market. There will be two different sizes of the WiFi model available at launch, a 16GB model which will retail for $469 and a 32GB model which will retail for $569.
We suspect that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be a popular tablet with Android fans, and considering the pricing and the thinness of the device it may just be able to take on the new iPad 2.
Samsung have not given an exact launch date for the Galaxy Tab 8.9, all we know is some time in the summer, as soon as we get more information on when it will be available, as well as pricing information on the WiFi & HSPA+ Galaxy Tab 8.9 we will let you guys know.
