Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab 8.9, an 8.9-inch tablet claiming to be the world's thinnest at just 8.6mm thin and weighing only 470g. This announcement comes on the heals of the still yet to be released 10.1-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the currently available original 7-inch Galaxy Tab. Both the 10.1 and 8.9 tablets offer the same specifications except for screen and battery sizes.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 feature Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface implemented on the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) platform, offering superior multi-tasking and enhanced user interaction and navigation.

Super Fast
The new Galaxy Tabs will support HSPA+ network speeds of up to 21Mbps as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity to deliver rapid mobile download speeds and reduce data transfer times. Also, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 include a 1GHz dual core application processor for a powerful multimedia and web browsing experience.

Customized User Experience “Samsung TouchWiz UX”
Samsung's TouchWiz user experience is designed with a Live Panel menu users can customize to display a variety of content on the home screen including digital pictures, favorite Web sites and social network feeds.

In addition, the interface includes an application tray of commonly used features such as task manager, calendar and music player which can be launched while other major applications are also in use, including large file downloads and document editing. This Mini Apps Tray provides a mixture of convenience and flexibility previously unheard of with tablet devices.

The devices are also designed with Samsung's Social Hub, which will aggregate email, instant messaging, contacts, calendar and social network connections into a single interface.
