Samsung announced that its tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, is set to be released on October 2 in the United States. For those of you who can’t wait, it can already be pre-ordered, Pocket-lint reports.
Six months after announcing the product CTIA in Orlando, Samsung revealed that its new tablet will be available to the American public starting October 2. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is 8.6 mm thick, which makes it skinnier than the iPad 2. When it comes to weight, don’t expect it to be too heavy, either. It has only 470g. The screen is an 8.9-inch Gorilla Glass with a resolution of 1280×800 and a WXGA display. The processor is an Nvidia Tegra 250 T20 1GHz dual core. It includes a 3-megapixel camera positioned on the back and one 2-megapixel one on the front. It can record 720 p video and it can playback 1080p. The connectivity is done via USB, Wi-Fi, HSPA+ (21Mbps) and Bluetooth 3.0.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is available in three versions of GB of storage: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The tablet is also provided with a microSD option for expanding the storage on board, in case you want that.
The prices differ according to the features. The 16 GB tablet is 469 dollars, and the 32GB one is 569 dollars.
Samsung also announced that the company will release other products during October: the Galaxy Player 5.0 and 4.0. They are already available for pre-order and will hit the shelves on October 16. The Galaxy Player 4.0 is expected to be priced at 229 dollars and the 5.0 will have a price of 269 dollars.
