8.9-inch Samsung tablet expected to join 7-inch and 10.1-inch siblings
Samsung has once again offered a sneak peak of the 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab it is widely expected to launch next week as a tantalising teaser video is released online.
Tipped by the Korean tech giant as a “Special Episode” in the series of Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 events, the unveiling, scheduled to take place in Orlando, Florida next Tuesday, March 22nd, is expected to see the launch of the latest Samsung Galaxy Tab device, one that will sport a new 8.9-inch form factor.
Offering a few short glimpses of the device’s design, the new leaked video has revealed that the ultra slim looking tablet will come equipped with a rear-mounted camera with an inbuilt flash. Little else is known on the mooted device that is believed to come sporting Google’s latest Android 3.0 tablet specific Honeycomb OS.
If Samsung does choose to officially unveil the Galaxy Tab 8.9 next week it would fall between the US and UK arrivals of Apple’s second generation tablet, the iPad 2 and precede the official May launch of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that was unveiled at Mobile World Congress last month with a dual-core processor and front and rear mounted cameras.
