Though its had some legal ups and downs of late, Samsung is still pumping out products. Today, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 has been made available for pre-order, with shipments to begin October 2. And rather than waste paper, Samsung included availability information on its Galaxy Player 5.0 and 4.0 within the release, as well.
Like the larger GalTab 10.1, the 8.9 will run Android 3.1 Honeycomb with the TouchWiz UI on top. Samsung has made quite a point over the fact that this, alongside big brother, is the thinnest tablet on the market, at 8.6mm. It comes packed with a dual-core 1GHz processor, 16GB of on-board memory and an 8.9-inch WXGA 1280×800 pixel display. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 also has a 3-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and flash, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter for video chat.
