Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 passes FCC with AT&T bands

Zack Nebbaki June 30, 2011 8



If the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was a little too big for you and were waiting to get your hand on a smaller version of it with 3G support, worry no more! The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has just appeared at the FCC, under the code name A3L-GTP7300, with the 3G emblem.

Early reports claim that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 will come packed with Honeycomb, Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 8.9-inch 1280×900 display, 1GB of RAM, 3-megapixel rear-camera, 2-megapixel front-camera and 16/32/64GB of internal space.

The test reports confirm that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will carry AT&T’s 850/1900MHz GSM bands along with the WCDMA bands II and V. We are starting to wonder if Samsung is going to release the Wi-Fi and 3G versions of the smaller Tab at the same time. One thing for sure, we should see the Galaxy Tab 8.9 3G in the near future.

    For a chick, a 8.9″ tab is perfect, you can’t handle a 10.1″ tab so easily for thumb typing!

      IMO, 7″ is better for typing. It’s easy to thumb type in portrait, and I have fairly big hands. 8.9 may be a bit awkward.

      Still, I’m seriously looking forward to this.

        I will have to give it a try! Overall though, I really like these 8.9′s..
        feels like a proper size for a tablet no?

    Samsung should release this thing already , otherwise if the rumored Amazon tabs are officially announced, I’ll be going Amazon. 
    Samsung comes up with very good products but it takes them an eternity to get their products ready and by then they’ve lost so much market.

    why is it no one has released a tab with celular telephony in the USA?  wouldnt that help them be more competitive with the style leader…iPad?
