Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Not so Thin After All?

As some of you may have seen earlier this week, Samsung posted a teaser image for their upcoming CTIA Tab announcement.  After a quick glance at the picture, many readers noticed how thin the tablet appeared to be.  Wow!  If that thing is thickest at the 3.5mm headphone jack, then this thing is going to be super thin! Right?  Wrong. Samsung is just really good at Photoshop and hiding things in the shadows.

We received an email this morning from a reader who decided to look a little closer at the picture.  As you’ll see below, the tablet is somewhat thicker than initially thought.  At an estimated average of 10mm thick (12mm at headphone jack), it is just a shade thicker than the iPad 2 (8.63mm).  Nevertheless, we’re still excited to see what’s under the hood come CTIA.

Thanks to charlie j for the work!

    Those measurements have included what seems to be part of the reflection of the tablet. Looks like the tablet ends with the distinctive white line shown in the picture.

      no… headphone jacks are not invisible when reflected.

        Maybe it’s a vampire headphone jack

        Maybe they photoshopped out the headphone jack reflection… It certainly makes more sense to think of the tablet as ending where the white line is. Otherwise it looks as if the tablet had a lid.

        That’s the screen’s reflection! It would be impossible to see the hp jack in that reflection…

  • Greybeard

    I call BS, he totally included the reflection. Does it really take a genius to know that Samsung is known for their smooth edges on their devices hence why they wouldn’t create multiple grooves

      Unless that’s a vampire headphone jack which doesn’t reflect, then that is not a reflection but part of the tablet.

    No way that measurement is correct. As stated in the other comments, the white line is the end of the device, the rest is just reflection. It would look really weird otherwise. Wait and see I guess.

    • gerrylum

      If the white line is the end of the device, then why isn’t the headphone jack reflecting?

      • Alexander

        Again, it’s the screen’s reflection…

    Yes but the functions and features makes it unique as compared to other tabs in market.

      What functions and features does it have better than the Motorola Xoom?

  • Anonymous

    Is this even going to compare to the Motorola Xoom? They really need to think about the price on this. Expecially if it is that thick.

    Jesus its just a reflection. Why would a tablet look like a laptop? Think people.

    • gerrylum

      Then please explain why the headphone jack is not represented in the “reflection”?

      • Anonymous

        Maybe they photoshopped it out because it didn’t look good reflected.

      • Alexander

        Because that’s the screen’s reflection!!!

  • Daveelt

    Go back to the original picture and zoom in. It looks like the picture above has been “processed” and in doing so, some new detail is appearing that might not even exist in the real world. I think the measurement above is suspect to say the least

    Looking at my 7 inch Tab, it doesn’t make any sense for that lower part to be part of the tablet. But then again, the audio jack on the 7″ isn’t poking out of a recessed area, which this appears to be.

  • http://theworldgrowsold.wordpress.com/ Mundus Senescit

    That’s clearly Bull…there’s no way they would make a device that looked like that. Definitely ends at the silver edge and doesn’t have some random black section continuing off…just a reflection

  • suicideluvkitty

    ya know…. apple’s focus on the aesthetics of their products. making them thinner and whatnot is part of why i hate apple. because every time i’ve had an apple product it’s been frustrating to use. and had a horrible lack in usability. usually simple things. like the app store remember where i am in the list of apps when i view the details of one. apple has spent all it’s time slimming the ipad down, and no time fixing the usability issues.

    so when i see android products racing to compete with apple on the least important aspects… like omg who can have the most anorexic tablet. i really hate everything that windows does that makes it feel more like a mac. apple is the cancer that’s destroying technology.

    The most effectual running boots use the current technical knowledge, which suggests you are competent to run longer accept your feet a item less hurt than if you’re wearing a couple of common teachers. Inside the nonexistence of appropriate Air Max running boots, golf boots, as in football!It is apparent that the Nike Air Max Lebron 8 V2 has advanced a many reputation amid more people. People are silly for its constancy and air cushion. What I would like to usher in is the sneaker with colorways of Black/Red/White/Gold. The sultry red takes cares of the laces and interior tongue, which is a kind good embellishment for the shoes. The pitch black treats Nike Air Max  higher and part of the outsole.The white Nike  Air Max TN aspects the midsole, and the outsole is the rubber air cushion. Of source, the gold Swoosh logo embellishes the boundary board alongside the shoes’ heel.
