Samsung Prepping 8.9-Inch Tablet?

According to a Samsung “company spokesman”, we can expect to see an 8.9-inch tablet sometime this year. Although no date (it’s rumored for a March release, but don’t hold us to that) or price, or specs for that matter were announced, we do know the screen size and that it’ll run Honeycomb upon launch. Again, these specs aren’t official yet, but so far it seems like Samsung is trying to compete with the LG G-Slate with this 8.9-inch Honeycomb tablet. The only big difference that we know of so far between the two is the 3D screen on the G-Slate. But maybe that’s just me. Either way, it looks like Sammy is planning a tablet that will sit comfortably between the 7-inch original Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 that they announced last Monday. Anyone excited for this tablet? Anyone want to wait for some more specs before they consider buying one? Sound off in the comments below!

    2011 isn’t the year of the tablet – it’s the year of tablet confusion. Every manufacturer is “shotgunning” the market with every crap-tablet they can come up with. I’ll be reserving my hard earned greenbacks until a clear winner (spec-wise and price-wise) emerges.

    While I don’t have the money for a beast like the Xoom, I do want a decent 3.0 Honeycomb tab. Problem here is, well, it’s Samsuck and all us Galaxy S owners (Epic for me) know how we feel about them… most likely, I’ll pick up a wifi only G-slate or wait till I can snag a Xoom on craigslist or Ebay.

    I hate to say it but so far, I like the wifi only iPad for my use. I would rather an open operating system but everything I have seem so far has a lot of stuff I won’t use and cost too much. I thought Apple was the expensive company but so far, it is not.

    I like my Galaxy S a lot but Samsung sure does not support their customers which suggests to me that to look at something else.

    I would like a 10 inch, wifi only tablet for around $500. I find it hard to believe that almost a year later, apple is the only that has one.
