Amazon UK has the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 on pre-order; shipping next week
Always a consideration for those who don’t want to be trotting around with a large gadget, Amazon UK currently has the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 up for pre-order on their site. Interestingly, its in-stock date is set for next week on August 12th, which means that it’s coming much sooner than what most people think.
However, it’s surely sporting one serious price tag out of the gate and seems intent on catching the gaze of only diehard early adopters. Priced at £605 (695 Euros/$990), it’s indeed one premium price that’s going to cost you big time right from the beginning.
TouchWiz UX is going to be available for Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners out there, it’s yet another unique aspect that we hope to see on board with the Tab 8.9 from the onset.

if this was 7 or 7.5 inches, it would be a most buy, especially because of the phone calling feature, but since it's 8.9, it gets too big to be used as smartphone

I reckon 8.9" is gonna be spot on in terms of size vs portability
My 10.1" Xoom is just too big.
