Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 photos leak ahead of launch

8.9-inch Samsung tablet caught in the wild hours before unveiling

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has appeared in a number of spy shots caught at CTIA just hours ahead of its official unveiling.

Having been teased by Samsung themselves in a tantalising preview video last week, gadget blog PocketLint has caught the imminent 8.9-inch device out in the wild with a series of snaps revealing the form factor and design of the latest edition to the Samsung Galaxy Tab family.

Looking very much like its 10.1-inch sibling that was officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month, the new 8.9-inch tablet has been spotted in Orlando, Florida ahead of today’s expected official confirmation and reveal.

Earlier today a snap of the device’s spec sheet revealed the 8.9-inch tablet will come with a 1200 x 800p resolution display, 1GHz processor and Google’s tablet-centric Android OS, Honeycomb. Lining up at a mere 8.6mm thick and 470g in weight, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is to measure up slimmer and considerably lighter than the Apple iPad 2 that is to launch in the UK this Friday.

Saving seemingly nothing for the official unveiling it has also been reported that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will feature a new Samsung UX that includes a ‘Live Panels’ UI, app switching using a ‘Mini App Tray’ feature and custom widgets.

Can any of Samsung’s range of Galaxy Tab devices topple the market dominating Apple iPad and upcoming iPad 2? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
