I have covered the Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi and Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G version of this ROM. Now it is time to inform everybody of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 version. There are two versions of this ROM, one for the 3G model and one for the Wi-Fi model. Make sure that you download and flash…
The title pretty much says it all. Sunday October 2nd the Wi-Fi version Galaxy Tab 8.9 will be available in the United States. There will be both the 16 GB and 32 GB models for $469 and $569 respectively.
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?
Comparison after the break.
That’s right boys and girls, the elusive Galaxy Tab 8.9 is finally about to land on US shores. Note that this is not the 1.5 GHz LTE model, but instead the 1 GHz Wi-Fi only model. That might be a disappointment for some, but it is what was promised by Samsung earlier this year.
Best Buy has them up for pre-order now for $469.99 and $569.99 for 16 GB and 32 GB respectively. That is $30 cheaper than the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it is more portable. Which is better? That is for you to decide when they ship out between September 25th and 30th.
We all thought that Samsung would announce the LTE Galaxy Tab 8.9 at IFA in a few days, but they decided to go ahead and announce it now. The announcement also included the affirmation of the 1.5 GHz processor inside of the Tab. It is not known if the 1.5 GHz processor will also be in the Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab 8.9. For some reason I doubt it will.
No other details are known at this time. Hopefully Samsung will announce price and availability at IFA.

The Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi has already hit the FCC, but now it is time for the 3G version to get handled by the FCC. The interesting thing here is that it has 3G bands for the AT&T network. Without a doubt AT&T will call it the Galaxy Tab 10.1 4G even though it only has 3G bands, but what are you doing to do.
