Apple's iPad 2 announcement a couple of days
ago proved that thickness in a tablet matters a lot, but could it be
that Samsung took the point and now it prepares an all-new extremely
slim tablet with a screen size of 8.9 inches? Judging by the picture
the company posted on its Facebook page, the headset jack will be the
thickest bulge in the tablet, while the overall thickness of its body
will be even thinner than that. We don't have an exact measure, but
judging by the looks it may come very close to Apple's razor thin 0.34-inch
(8.8mm) second-gen iPad.
Samsung's expected 8.9-incher will have the same screen size like the one on the T-Mobile G-Slate and a slightly smaller one than the 9.7-inch screen on the iPad 2. Details about specifications are still scarce, but March 22nd is just two weeks away, so stay tuned!
