Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: Price, Specs, and Features Announced!

Oh, boy. This could be a huge surprise, really!
If Samsung just introduced only the Galaxy Tab 10.1 at the recent MWC, then that’s probably because the company don’t want us to know they have something more to bet in the competition.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9

Just today in the on-going International CTIA Wireless event in Orlando, Florida – Samsung announced its third tablet in the Galaxy Tab line-up, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.

The Galaxy Tabs (7-inch, 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch)

And if you can still remember when Steve Jobs said the iPad 2 will send its rivals back to the drawing board, then Samsung could ask you to think again. Bringing almost the same specs as its bigger brother, including the Honeycomb taste and the blazing performance of a dual-core 1GHz processor, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 could be another perfect choice if you want to stay between the 7 and 10-inch form-factor.
