Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 & 10.1 Update

TabletConnect has not reported much on the next generation Samsung Galaxy Tab tablets.  With a press release launched this morning, we are providing some details.  There will be two versions: 8.9 & 10.1 which of course refers to the size.  The WiFi version of the 10.1 will launch on June 8th.  Pricing is as follows:
  • 16GB WiFi, $499
  • 32GB WiFi, $599
The two Galaxy Tabs will sport Android Honeycomb and will have dual-core processor (no confirmation if Tegra2).  However, unlike the Motorola Xoom, Samsung is adding its own skin called TouchWix 4.0.  So one will not have a pure Android Honeycomb experience.

Pricing for the 8.9 will be slightly less:
  • 16GB WiFi, $469
  • 32GB WiFi, $569
One noticeable thing on these tablets is that they are very thin - measuing .33 inches thick which is .01 inches thinner than Apple's iPad 2.  Pricing is competitive so we'll see how this tablet plays out.
