New Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 announced
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.
