Samsung Tab

The company announced the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 8.9. Even though it was supposed to be a surprised, most already knew about it. A few weeks ago, some specs leaked out on the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab, and Samsung had this ad campaign with the numbers 7 8 9 10, an obvious clue that an 8.9 inch tablet would be sandwhiched between the 7-inch and 10-inch tablets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Samsung’s theme was about getting a “Tab Life”, and their presentation showed a lot ordinary people trying out their Tab tablets. The company stated that these new tablets are the thinnest out there at 8.6 mm. The 10.1 weighs in at a mere 595 grams, and has a battery life of about 10 hours worth of use. Samsung seemed to talk more about the 10.1 than the smaller 8.9.

 

The 10.1 will be out on June 8th, and the price of the Wi-Fi version will be $499 for the 16GB and $599 for the 32GB. As for the 8.9, there isn’t a more specific release date, but we know the price for the Wi-Fi model: $469 for the 16 GB model and $569 for the 32 GB.
