Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 announced: specifications and pricing

Samsung has just unveiled the Galaxy Tab 8.9 which is simply smaller version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 announced last month at MWC. So what the big difference between the two products? Noting besides that screen size: 8.9 inch vs 10.1 inch. Everything else is essentially the same; same Tegra 2 SoC, Same 3mPix camera on the back and 2Mpix on the front etc..

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Preview and hands on video

The Samsung Galaxy S II wasn’t the only device unveiled during last night event so here comes a couple of pictures and a hands-on video of the newly introduced Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (aka Galaxy Tab 2). Samsung didn’t flesh out the detailed hardware specifications but we already know that the devices has a 10.1 inch 1280×800 display, 8mpx rear camera and 2Mpx front facing camera and is powered by nVidia’s Tegra 2. This is also a bit surprising given that the Galaxy S II is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 4210 dual-core Application Processor which is probably faster than the Tegra 2. In a sens it does confirm that nVidia SoC is the “recommended” chipset for the first batch of Android 3.0 honeycomb tablets. I’m currently running out of time here so I will updated this preview with more thoughts on this device later today. In the mean time you can check out the hands-on video and pictures after the break:
