After launching successful tablets like the Samsung galaxy tab 7.0 and Samsung Galaxy 10.1, it looks like Samsung does not want to leave any stone unturned. One can realize it from the fact that they are back with yet another tablet the Galaxy tab 8.9 which is slightly bigger than the 7.0 version and smaller than the 10.1 version. Let us have a look at its specifications.
With the dimensions 9.1 x 6.2 x .34 inches it is quite comfortable to handle and weighs only 447g that ensures that you can hold it for long. When it comes to design, it is almost identical to its bigger version only with a few minor changes the most prominent being the shifting of speakers to the bottom. The tablet is given a metallic texture with a blue hue and is called the Metallic Grey colour by Samsung. This is the only color option available in two different capacity versions i.e. 16GB or 32GB. The tablet lacks a micro SD slot, so one cannot extend the memory.
The 8.9 inch screen may not be impressive like the AMOLED Plus displays but with 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution it is quite impressive. It is integrated with two cameras, a rear three megapixel camera and a front two megapixel camera. It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM that offers same performance like the 10.1. The 6100mAh battery ensures a run time of nine hours on a single charge. Running on Honeycomb 3.1 topped with the TouchWiz offers an interactive interface.
The tablet is available in all major retail stores, both online and in brick and mortar stores. The 16 GB version can be bought at a price of $436 while the 32 GB version will cost you $100 extra. This is almost $50 less than its big brother with a 10.1 screen.
