So that’s why they’re having a sale on the 1st-gen Samsung Galaxy Tab — Samsung has officially announced an 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab that’s even thinner than the previously announced 10.1 incher.
What’s another surprise is that they’ve re-worked the 10.1″ Tab along with the 8.9″. These 2 new Galaxy Tabs are even lighter and thinner (that’s 8.6mm thin) than the recently announced iPad 2.
It’s powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor, and comes with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, microSD card slot, 3MP camera that can do 720p and a 2nd 2MP front-facing camera for video calls.
The 8.9″ Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet will retail for $469 (16GB) and $569 (32GB) for the WiFi-only models.
