Apple's iPad 2 lands in the UK this Friday, but Samsung has decided to throw some doubt in our mind by offering up an all-new tablet of its own - the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9.
Apparently, this is the thinnest tablet on the market, a super-slim 8.6mm thin to be precise. It also packs the latest Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) operating system, packing a 1280x800 WXGA display, a 1GHz dual core processor, a 3-megapixel camera for stills and video recording and a 2-megapixel on the front for video calling. Plenty of connectivity too - USB, Wi-Fi, HSPA+ and Bluetooth 3.0 for example.
Choose from 16GB, 32GB or 64GB models when it lands, probably in the next couple of months. Price? No word on that yet, but it's likely to be competitive with the new iPad.
