Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 passes FCC with AT&T bands

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?
