The Galaxy Tab 8.9 is coming out later this month according to Best Buy’s website, and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is coming in the coming months according to Samsung. A lot of people missed the smaller form factor of the original Tab, so which of the these two is better?

Clearly the specs are better on the Galaxy Tab 7.7. The chart didn’t mention this, but the 7.7 has a Super AMOLED Plus display making the screen infinitely better than any other screen on the market.
You might opt for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 because it will be available later this month and the 7.7 does not have a release date. The price has not been announced for the 7.7 yet either, and it will likely cost more than the 8.9 because of the better specs in a smaller package. Either way, you can not go wrong.
