Looks like Samsung let someone wonder around the show floor a bit early at CTIA. to Sneaked pics of the Galaxy Tab 8.9, albeit of the signage, are out for your perusal. Many sources have pointed to Samsung’s big event tomorrow at CTIA for the new Galaxy Tab 8.9 release, and these photos certainly appear confirm the rumors.
According to the pictures, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will have the Live Panel homescreen, a customizable homescreen with widgets like email, weather, news, agenda, and stocks. The new Tab will have a 1280 x 800 WXGA touchscreen and a 1 GHz dual core processor. Weight comes in at svelte 470 grams (1 lb).
After not much luck selling the original GalTab, Samsung has upped the ante with their newest tablet. It’s designed to have much better — almost PC-like — performance. This should help it better compete against the iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom. We’ll know more tomorrow; Greg is on the case.
