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.

    Hi Florin,

    In regards to your coverage on technology, I thought you might be interested in the following information:

    Entrepreneur Phil Karl of Manhattan (in his mid-20s) did not want to pay expensive mobile text messaging charges, so he figured out how to make it free.

    His technology enables Android, iPhone and Blackberry users to text for free. LiveProfile’s texting app is 100 times faster, and displays when your message has been delivered and read.

    I can arrange an interview.
