The folks over at Pocketnow attended the CTIA and managed to snap some photographs of the promo material for Samsung’s upcoming Honeycomb (Android 3.0) tablet, the Galaxy Tab 8.9. As its name suggests, the tablet features an 8.9″ screen that has a resolution of 1280 x 800, giving the screen a higher pixel density than Motorola Xoom and other 10″ tablets with the same resolution. It also runs a customized version of Honeycomb on a dual-core 1GHz processor (it wasn’t mentioned by who), weighs 1.03 pounds (470g) and is only 8.6mm thin. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 features a dual antenna design that apparently grants it higher WiFi speeds. It’ll be interesting to see how well Samsung’s own UX works on top of Honeycomb, since there have been previous complaints about how unpolished Honeycomb is – Samsung’s customizations might change that. Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming tablet.
