Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Hands-On in Germany

It appears that our Android pals in Deutschland have gotten their hands on the yet to be release Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, one of two new tablets announced back at CTIA 2011 (we where there!) but without working units (we got to see the dummies!) We also got to see a working version of the Android 3.0 Honeycomb with TouchWiz overlay on a different test-unit tablet that same faithful day - what NewGadgetsDE has for the world now is no less than those two elements combined - and in a white-backed unit!


Have a look at the images of this ultra-sleek 9.09 x 6.21 x 0.34-inch (230.9 x 157.8 x 8.6-mm) tablet, noting that it's hella light at 16.58 oz (470 g) and holds in its guts a dual-core 1GHz chipset and an 8.9-inch 1280 x 800 pixel display. It's completely lovely, and even though I've not personally seen this fully working unit, I can tell you that the UI is tight and the physical device is utterly excellent to behold and be held. Take a look here at a video of the unit working in DE:

And take a peek at the gallery of images DE photographed (one of them next to an iPhone 4 for some odd reason,) and behold the whiteness of it all. After (or before) that, take a peek at both our hands-on video for the hardware and our hands-on with the software. Love em all!

Next take a look at two of our classiest videos to date - one with yours truly looking like a newb showing off the newest Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 tablets, the other showing off the TouchWiz UX for Honeycomb. By your powers combined!
