Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Joins Android Tablet Ecosystem - Desktops and Notebooks - News & Reviews - eWeek.com

Looks nice, but $469.99 (price at Best Buy this morning) => non-starter, with the market expectation reset following the Kindle Fire introduction

Samsung has set Oct. 2 as the ship date for the Galaxy Tab 8.9, the newest Android tablet in its line. The newest touch-screen in Samsung's lineup (joining the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab and larger Galaxy Tab 10.1), the Galaxy Tab 8.9 packs a significant amount of power under the hood, thanks to its 1.4GHz dual-core processor and either 16GB or 32GB of onboard memory. In a bid to establish its own product ecosystem, Samsung has "skinned" the default Android 3.1 interface with its proprietary TouchWiz aesthetic, and added a few unique apps and features such as an email-consolidating Social Hub.
