AT&T Galaxy Tab 8.9 receives FCC approval

The tablet has reportedly been approved for GSM and WCDMA use in the U.S.

The 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab is making its way to America’s largest cellular network.

Website Droidmatters has spotted the FCC filing for Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9 under the FCC ID A3LGTP7300. The tablet has apparently been approved for GSM and WCDMA usage and will very likely come with 3G connectivity.

Final specs for the Galaxy Tab 8.9 are still unknown, but we suspect it to have at least a dual-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and Android Honeycomb. A front and rear camera with up to a 64GB SSD is expected as well.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 also hit the FCC a couple weeks back for the AT&T network as well. It may be likely that both the 8.9-inch and 10.1-inch versions will be made available for AT&T subscribers.

First teased at CTIA 2011, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 was predicted to come sometime before the end of summer. While the release window is still unofficial, the recent FCC filing could be an indication of a release sooner rather than later.
