The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, which was announced at CTIA back in March, was officially announced to the public this evening at an event in New York City. We’ll have some pictures and video up shortly from the event.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 which was unveiled at IFA earlier this month, and abruptly removed from Samsung’s booth because of an Apple injunction, made it’s way through the FCC’s Columbia Maryland based approvals department. The 7.7 inch Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet passed through the FCC with only wifi radios on board.
The original 7″ Samsung Galaxy Tab was launched around the same time last year on all four carriers AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile. However it’s unclear by this FCC filing what radios will be on board when this tablet finally makes it to the U.S. As Phandroid’s Chris Chavez said, at least the timing of this filing makes it a real possibility that we can see the 7.7 before the holidays here stateside.
