Description

Samsung GALAXY Tab 8.9 is the smaller brother of the GALAXY Tab 10.1 and obviously will be equipped with an 8.9-inch touchscreen, but the exciting part here is its unprecedented thinness of just 8.6mm! That's 0.2mm thinner than the iPad 2, which is the current leader in this aspect. In addition, the device's weight will be fixed at just 16.5 oz (470 grams), making it one of the lightest full-sized tablets out there.
