Samsung to launch an extremely slim 8.9-inch tablet on March 22nd?

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!

Too late when the Ipad2 has not even hit the market? Right, I like android and pricing and functionality will determine which one i get. Im not too concerned about one tablet being slightly thinner than the other. I like the specs of the galaxy tab 10.1 and thats what im leaning toward or the wifi xoom. I hope they release the wifi only version alone with the 3g 4g or whatever crap they wanna tie to a carrier.

It's true that bulid quality of samsung is not at par with apples products still they're packed with all the good features with a few tricks under it's sleeve. I hope this product too unleashes some good features. .
