Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 dubbed as the perfectly sized tablet(0)
Dubbed as the perfectly sized Tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has been recently seen in Germany, just more than a month after it was introduced in CTIA.
After the release of iPad2, Samsung seized the opportunity of competing with Apple. Samsung produced a better and slimmer Tablet according to Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 technical specifications. When Apple released its iPad2 with a 0.34 inch thickness, Samsung tried its best and came up with 0.33 inch thick Tablet. That’s how competitive the market players are.
According to some reviews, especially among those not fond of Android Tablets, Samsung is exempted to be not liked. It has the capacity to overcome iPad2 in terms of performance. Run by 1GHz dual core processor, with Android 3.0 Honeycomb Operating System with Touchwiz 4.0 platform, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 price is worth of its value and capability in computing tasks.
With respect to other specs, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has two cameras, one VGA on the front for video chat and one 3MP rear facing camera with LED flash for taking pictures and video shooting. Its 8.9 LCD widescreen has a 1280 by 800 pixels resolution, just like the usual laptop or desktop have.
In terms of price, people can buy Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 with 16GB and 32 GB memory storage options in as low as $469 and $569, respectively.
Having a size of 8.9, it is the most perfect Samsung Galaxy Tab ever introduced. The 7.0 inch gives a somewhat limited screen, thus, strict video watching, while 10.1 inches Tablet might be too heavy to be handed always. Tablet 8.9 is just the perfect Samsung Galaxy Tablet among the three.
Truly, Samsung is on its way of making the best Tablet, creating a complete ecosystem where people could browse the internet, download music, read books, watch movies and so on and so forth.

For now, T-Mobile is the exclusive distributor of G-Slate and reports say that T-Mobile plans for profit out of G-Slate is a bit slow.
