Samsung 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab specs revealed

Specs for Samsung’s upcoming 8.9-inch Android powered Galaxy Tab slate have leaked ahead of its official unveiling at the CTIA expo happening later today.

The tech mob at PocketNow have managed to grab hold of snaps of what appears to be an information stand intended for Samsung’s CTIA booth, to educate the press and investors alike of what to expect from the latest nine-inch iteration of the original Galaxy Tab.

Other than the obvious 8.9-inch touch-sensitive screen, the tablet-optimised Android 3.0, AKA Honeycomb powered, Galaxy Tab 8.9 sports a 1GHz dual core processor, a 1280 x 800 WXGA resolution display, dual Wi-Fi antennas at 2.4GHz and 50Hz respectively, plus the bespoke Samsung UX UI overlay and a Mini Apps Tray at the bottom of the screen to give quick access to running apps without leaving the one already open.

It also boasts some impressively slim dimensions, measuring just 8.6mm in thickness and weighing just 470 grams.

Samsung has also announced a 10-inch addition to the Galaxy Tab family at the Mobile World Congress last month. Both tablets are expected to hit store shelves in Europe this quarter.
