Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be available in the US on October 2

If there’s one Android-powered tablet that is taking its sweet time getting to the market, it has to be Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9. Its bigger brother, the 10.1, has been sold in many markets for a long time now, yet the smaller member of Samsung’s 2011 tablet lineup still isn’t anywhere to be found. Well, it’s about to reach US consumers.

The Galaxy Tab 8.9 has been up for pre-order at Best Buy for a couple of weeks now, and while the retailer did publish pricing information, there was no release date to speak of.

Until now. Samsung has officially announced that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will start shipping to US customers on October 2. The manufacturer was also kind enough to reveal the official recommended pricing for the tablet, basically confirming what Best Buy has been asking for the device.

So, the 16 GB Galaxy Tab 8.9 will set you back $469, while the 32 GB variant requires you to shell out $569 if you want to own one.

The wait is almost over, at least if you’re in the US. We have no details on when the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will make it to other countries, but we’re hoping it will happen soon. 7 months was a long time to wait, so Samsung should probably try not to make that any longer for anyone.
