Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 out 12 August

Amazon listing says tablet will be out next week

Galaxy Tab 10.1 sibling finally ready for release.

Don’t fancy the newly-launched Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1? Want something similar but smaller? Then Amazon has the answer. It’s just listed the Galaxy Tab 8.9 for release on 12 August.

The official page over at the online retailer’s site says the slate will cost £605.34 for the white 3G model. The slimline tablet only measures 8.6mm thin and tips the scales at just 470g. Android Honeycomb is sitting pretty under the hood.

The device is a decent option for those who aren’t keen on an iPad 2, but don’t fancy the capacious stylings of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
