Samsung has sent out an email teasing a Honeycomb tablet for the CTIA tradeshow on March 22. The teaser, which asks, “What’s Your Tab Life?” also features the numbers “78910.”
Between the 7-inch Galaxy Tab released last year, and the 10.1-inch tab announced at Mobile World Congress, the “89” presumably signifies the 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab outed by a Korean news outlet last week.
Virtually nothing is known about the 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab, but the teaser features a generic picture of a tablet with the familiar Honeycomb lattice. By way of comparison, Samsung claims the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will ship with a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor and sport a 1200 x 800 screen resolution – similar to the Motorola Xoom.
The Galaxy Tab 8.9 isn’t the only 8.9-inch Honeycomb tablet to hit the market. The LG G-Slate/Optimus Pad will also feature an 8.9-inch screen.
Samsung also cozied up with six carriers for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab, and plans to release a 4G Galaxy Tab through Verizon. CTIA is largely a telecom showcase, so the Galaxy Tab 8.9-inch will most likely be a 3G/4G device.
