Back in March at CTIA in Orando Samsung’s then CTO, Omar Khan, introduced the US to two new Galaxy Tab Android tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has already been released in both a wifi only and 4G/LTE version. The other Galaxy Tab, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 was supposed to arrive during the summer and now we’re hearing that they may just make it by a nose hair.
Best Buy is now taking preorders for the 8.9″ version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Apple has sued Samsung around the world for infringing on patents pertaining to their 10″ Apple iPad. At first we thought that the smaller versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab were immune to the Apple lawsuits however an injunction was quickly remedied in Germany to include even the 7.7″ version of the tablet. It’s only a matter of time before Samsung has to defend itself for this design as well.
As a refresher, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 runs Android 3.1, Honeycomb, 1GB of memory, 8.9 inch wxga display. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 comes in a 16gb or 32gb version. The 16gb version is $469.99 and 32gb version is $569.99.
