Galaxy Tab 8.9 confirmed: 1280×800 display, 1GHz dual-core CPU



We’ve got the first glimpse of what we can expect from the Samsung Unpacked event tomorrow. PocketNow managed to get these shots from the CTIA show floor that clearly highlights some of the key features of Galaxy Tab 8.9.

Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be sleek, measuring just 8.6mm in thickness, weigh 470 grams and feature an 8.9-inch display supporting 1280×800 (WXGA), 1GHz dual-core processor and dual-band Wi-Fi support.

As we’d expected, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will run on Honeycomb OS but as opposed to previous Honeycomb tablets we’ve seen, this one will have Samsung’s customized user interface on top of the OS with Live Panels showing emails, weather, stock etc. and Mini Apps Tray that will allow users to select 6 apps to “pop-up” without switching the screen.

Needless to say, Galaxy Tab 8.9 looks promising and we can expect all the details like availability and pricing to go official tomorrow.
