Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 Accessories Announced

Just like with the first generation Galaxy Tab, Samsung is bringing a slew of first party accessories. No prices were announced, but some of them look pretty nifty.

The first is a Stick Type Bluetooth Headset that you do not wear on your head. Oddly enough it is just a wireless microphone shaped like a pen that is meant for a shirt/jacket pocket. It gets a decent 6 hours of talk time and vibrates to notify you of incoming Skype calls, presumably.

Next is a Sound Station. It has something known as a GEL Woofer and looks pretty cool. You just dock your Tab in there and you can play music. It has a 2.1 speaker which means it has two speakers and one subwoofer.

The Desk Dock is a simple dock for charging and syncing. Also it has a built in HDMI port, so it is necessary to buy if you plan on using HDMI to display videos on the big screen.

Another port that Samsung left out is a USB port. So they are selling a USB Connection Kit. It will be a SD card reader and allow USB input and output. For some reason it is only available on the Galaxy Tab 8.9.

The last accessory is a case. Well maybe it is a stand. No it is both a case and a stand! Without a doubt it was a quick design to combat the iPad 2’s Smart Cover. It does not look nearly as good as it though. That is ok because Samsung spent its time on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9 hardware instead.

Do any of these accessories seem cool to you?
