Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Hands On

Today at Samsung Unpacked Sammy unveiled their new lineup of tablets. The new Galaxy Tab comes is  7, 8.9, and 10.1 inch versions. They announced that the 10.1 Tab would June 8th and the 8.9  would be coming soon this spring. The 8.9 inch Tab will be $469 for the 16gb model and $569 for the 32gb model. Both tablets have dual-core processors and are only going to be 8.66 mm thick. Enough chatter though, check out our hands on with the Galaxy Tab 8.9 featuring TouchWiz4.

The current model that they have in the Samsung booth here at CTIA is the European version, and the States version is set to be thinner and lighter and will most likely include a software update that polishes TouchWiz4. Samsung won Mobile Trax award for best small tablet with their 7 inch this year at CTIA, and the new lineup of Tabs is sure to impress and sell as well. The cheap price of the Tab is really a kicker, and the marketing campaign by Samsung is also very good, and these new Tabs will probably put Samsung way up on the list for tablets.

  1. I really like the Galaxy Tab 8.9. It seems like it is very portable, it has a big screen, has almost the same stuff as the 10.1 Tab, I think this one is a winner. I just hope that it doesn’t take too long for summer to get here because I really want this tab. As soon as I do get one, the first app that I am going to get will be the DISH Remote Access app. This app lets me take my TV anywhere with me. As long as I have a 3G or wifi connection, I can stream live TV and recorded shows when and where I want from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver. I am a customer and employee of DISH Network, so I have been using the app and the receiver for a long time and it is awesome! I think it will be awesome on the Galaxy Tab. Especially if they put 4G on the Tab, then I will be able to stream super fast! I am so excited for the Galaxy Tab 8.9! Good job Samsung for making the tablet thinner than the iPad 2!

  2. Just more droidguy bullshit I assume. Misleading headlines, poor fact checking and twitter spam seems to be what this place is all about.

    These guys will stoop to anything for a few extra clicks.

  3. Any reason why there is no video in this post? I’m trying to find a link somewhere or something but I see no “hands on”.
