Samsung officially prices the Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab 8.9 at $469 for the 16GB model
Following up after Best Buy, where pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi are being offered right now, Samsung is coming out to confirm officially the tablet’s pricing in the US.

Perusing Samsung’s web site, the 8.9” Wi-Fi only version of the tablet is priced at $469 for the 16GB version – meanwhile, the 32GB one is naturally priced $100 more at $569. With that, you get the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 with Android 3.1 Honeycomb running Samsung’s TouchWiz UX interface on top of it, dual-core 1GHz processor, 3-megeapixel camera in the rear, and a front facing 2-megapixel one. With its arrival, Samsung pretty much has every tablet category covered from small, medium, and large.

Taking into account the price difference between it and the larger Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, do you think the pricing is justifiable? Or would you rather simply wait it out for something like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 instead?
