New 9-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab model reportedly in the works

Official announcement expected at the CTIA phone show later this month

Currently, Samsung offers the 7-inch Galaxy Tab in the United States for around $599 with a 2-year cellular contract and a 10.1-inch variant to be released within the coming months. According to Electronista, however, Samsung could be working on yet another Galaxy Tab model, this time in a screen size between that of the two other versions. The claim is based on a teaser image Samsung Mobile officially released, which hints at a possible new tablet. The supposed 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab should be unveiled at the CTIA phone show in New Orleans on March 22nd.

Specifications are not yet known, but it is safe to assume that the hardware would be similar to the other Galaxy Tab members, such as having an Nvidia Tegra 2 APU, 3G or 4G connectivity and possibly Android 3.0. More info on the tablet will come later this month as the CTIA phone expo nears.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
