Samsung now completes the line up of their Android devices, from S2, Note, Tab 7, Tab 10.1 and now slotting between the two tablets is the Galaxy Tab 8.9

If you didn’t get what you wanted for xmas, perhaps it’s time to look at this!

This device is perfect for those who thinks the Tab 10.1 is a little too big, and the 7 just a tad too small. At 453 grams, it is also an ideal weight for some especially when you factor in using it as a reading device in bed. The 10.1 is a bit too heavy for me in this aspect.

Galaxy Tab 8.9

Here’s the specification of the Galaxy Tab 8.9, and they are almost the same with the bigger brother, except for the screen size of course.

  • Android 3.1 Honeycomb
  • 8.9″ touch screen display
  • 1 Ghz dual core processor
  • 16 GB internal memory
  • 2MP front & 3MP back camera
  • Supports Wifi & 3G
  • 720p HD video recording

Galaxy Tab 8.9 now with Celcom

While the LCD is smaller, it spots the same 1280 x 800 resolution with the 10.1. Which means that it actually has a higher pixel density. In layman’s term, the screen is actually sharper to look at. Coupled with the fact that this device is slightly cheaper than the 10.1, I can see that a lot of people will favor the 8.9 unless you really do want to have the biggest out there.

Celcom brought in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (Wifi + 3G version) to Malaysia and you can get it for as low as RM 1,288 (RRP RM 1,699) with Celcom Broadband packages. Check out the table below:

Tablets now it’s like those free t-shirts that only comes in one size. S, M, L, take your pick.

  1. Looks like Samsung is attaching the Apple’s iPad left right and centre. Still an Android running on Honeycomb? What happened to the latest OS like Ice Cream Sandwich or Gingerbread?

    • JD: ya the competition is strong. I believe they’ll upgrade the OS to ice cream sandwich when it comes out, gingerbread is actually older than honeycomb

  2. wah.. so many gadget now.. How can “digest” all of them..
