Does it mattr? the two tablets are exactly the same. same colour, same processor, same OS, same width. The 8.9 is slightly smaller but who cares?

Yeah this is Samsung's new tactic. Sell the exact same product only in a slightly different size. Boring.

Its called "Variety" of screen size, one may fit one person while the other may be too small or too big

I would love to trade my 10.1 for the 8.9. Wish I could do that without doing the whole ebay thing.

Well it depended what size I wanted. If there exactly the same but I wanted a little bigger of one I would have went back and got the bigger one. I thought there was a difference though like brand of chip. The other thing isn't the 8.9 cheaper. I would have atliest got the difference in money. Did he get an LTE one when he was supposed to get a wifi only. There is more info befor I can make a decision of what I would do that I need to make my mind up. I can say one thing for sure I have an iPad 2 and I love it with the apps it has but I really am getting frustrated when I go to a web site and I can't look at it cause there is no flash support. I am thinking about getting an android tablet because of that. I would hav gotten the zoom but the LTE version was going too take too long and it was too expensive.

It's weird though that the guy that checks the reciept with the one on the box did not notice or the salesman that gave him that one did not notice the price difference when he scanned it
