Tomorrow Samsung is holding a big announcement at CTIA for their 8.9 inch slate, that they have not been so coy about. Pocket Now managed to get their hands on some photos of some of the specs and features of it.
This is not just a Galaxy Tab 10.1 in a slightly smaller fashion. Samsung has implemented a custom user interface to go on top of Android 3.0 Honeycomb. This is the first customization I have seen of the latest version of Android. All of the other tablets announced seem to have stock, which is very good too. Of course the new UI will have a slew of custom widgets and personalization.
It will have the same 1280 x 800 resolution as on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 on an 8.9 inch screen, which will increase the pixel density. If you do not know what that means, think of the Apple iPhone’s Retina display. The latest Tab will also feature a dual-core 1 GHz CPU, which is more than likely the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.
Not surprisingly the 8.9 inch Tab will have a very thin design. People thought that the iPad 2′s 8.8 mm thick tablet was thin and Samsung one up’d them! Coming in at 8.6 mm, it will surely look very sleek.
What do you think of these specs? Are you happy, sad, or don’t care about the custom user interface?

I love when popular iPhone applications get ported over to Android. Just like Angry Birds was free when ported, FatBooth is also a free download on the Android Market.
FatBooth is just a silly application to make yourself or others appear fatter. It works much better than I expected and is fun to use.
The app could not be easier to use. Just open app and press start. Review the example photo that shows you how to take a photo. Basically make sure that you are looking straight at the camera. Next you can either choose to take a photo or choose a photo from your gallery. Unfortunately, you can’t utilize the front facing camera to take a photo of yourself. You could always take a picture in the camera app with the front facing camera and import it from your gallery into the FatBooth application, but that is a frustrating workaround. Hopefully future updates will address this.
Next it will automatically find the face in the photo and try to guess where the eyes, mouth and chin are located. Then it will give you a chance to adjust them to line up exactly with your facial features. Press the go button after you have lined it all up and it will magically make you look like you have gained fifty or so pounds. Shaking the device will give you a before and after comparison.
Try taking pictures of coworkers, friends and family and making them fat as a joke. It will surely make them chuckle. Just go and download the app for free from the Android Market.
