The 8.9-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 has gone up for pre-order in Germany, confirming a European price tag of €606.50 ($853). Amazon is currently listing the 16GB version of the slate, which uses NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor along with Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
As the direct price conversion above suggests, Europe is looking at paying a whole lot more for the 8.9-inch Tab than its US counterparts. Samsung has previously confirmed that the 16GB version will be $469 in the US.
Full specifications are not given, so it’s unclear if this is the WiFi-only version or the promised Galaxy Tab 8.9 3G with integrated WWAN. That might explain a little of the extra mark-up, though it still seems that Europeans are getting a bum deal.[via NetbookNews]
