Samsung to Introduce 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab Next Month?


Earlier this month at Mobile World Congress Samsung introduced the second member of the Galaxy Tab family, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (shown above). Now rumors are suggesting it won’t be the only new Galaxy Tab we see this year, suggesting an 8.9-inch model is already in the works and could be announced as soon as next month.

It makes some sense. Considering Samsung didn’t call the 10.1-inch model the Galaxy Tab II, it leaves room for a Galaxy Tab 8.9. We would guess the tablet would run Honeycomb and carry many of the same features (such as dual-core processing) as the 10.1-inch version. Next month lines up with the CTIA show in Orlando, so it is definitely possible. Samsung seems committed to coating the market with every imaginable size device on as many carriers as possible, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this rumor turns true.

  1. I like the size of an 8 or 9in screen over a 10. It covers that midway point(large screen yet portable) This is more of the tablet im looking for Optimus Pad tho of course.

  2. Samsung and LG are constantly copying from each other..

  3. 8.9 sounds cheaper than 10.1 so bring that mug WiFi only and I’m souled.

  4. @ hesoyam – this is a known fact.

  5. There’s still hope that I will get a truely mobile tablet running Android 3.0!! PLEASE come to Verizon and be a Google Experience tablet!!!

  6. Seems, like only HTC can create sleek and stylish 7″ aluminum Honeycomb tablet. It would be a hit. Flyer is very interesting too.

    What’s the sense in 10.1″ AND 8.9″ AND 7″ difference in one single lineup?

    10.1″ and 7″ Xoom and 7″ HTC will be enough for me to choose from.

  7. It better come to Sprint too, which most likely will since Sprint carries the Galaxy Tabs anyway.

  8. Also in the future lineup for Samsung, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the Galaxy Tab 8.33333, and the Galaxy Tab 6√2.
