Samsung has surprisingly announced not one, but two new Android tablets at CTIA Wireless 2011. Alongside the Galaxy Tab 8.9, the South Korean company has also unveiled a thinner version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Both new Galaxy Tabs measure only 8.6mm in thickness, which make them slightly thinner than Apple’s iPad 2 (announced earlier this month as the world’s thinnest tablet).
The two Samsung tablets obviously run Android 3.0 Honeycomb. They also come with Samsung’s new TouchWiz UX, which includes a customizable Live Panel menu, and a Mini Apps Tray.
Other common features:
- HSPA 21Mbps, 850/900/1900/2100
- EDGE/GPRS, 850/900/1800/1900
- WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n
- 3MP rear camera
- 2MP front-facing camera
- 1GHz Dual Core application processor
- 16GB / 32GB / 64GB on-board memory
- MicroSD card support (up to 32GB)
Both the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 should be commercially available starting June. We’ll have some hands-on photos and videos of them soon, so stick around.
