Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 And 8.9 Unveiled, WiFi Price Known

Galaxy Tab 10.1
Today, Samsung officially announced two new tablet computes, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9.  If for some reason you haven’t figure it out, that’s 10.1-inch and 8.9-inches in terms of screen size.  For the record this isn’t the same 10.1-inch tablet we saw from Samsung in February; it’s been slimmed down with a less powerful camera.

Both touchscreen devices are powered by a 1GHz dual core application processor, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth, Android 3.0 and HSPA+ network connectivity with speeds up to 21Mbps.

There is no word on when the Tab 10.1 and 8.9 will go on sale, but they’ll both support Flash 10.2 and include a rear facing 3 megapixel camera and a front facing 2 megapixel camera capable of capturing 1080p HD video.  The 10.1-inch version will boast a 1280 x 800 screen, measure 8.6mm thick (.2mm than the iPad) and weigh 595g (6g less than the iPad).  The 8.9-inch version – screen resolution is unknown – is also 8.6mm thin and weighs 470 grams.

We’re hearing that the 16GB and 32GB WiFi only versions will go on sale for $500 and $600 respectively, which competively aligns them with, what else, the iPad 2.
