Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 wins FCC approval: US release imminent

By Tina Chubb - May 27, 2011

We’ve known about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablet for quite some time now, and we’ve even provided our readers with the specs and the price for the Wi-Fi version. What we didn’t know however was when exactly the much-anticipated device would be arriving.

However, according to a recent article over on the website, the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 – known as the GT-P7310 – has recently won approval from the FCC, so I think we can safely say that the US release is imminent.

As the FCC filings show, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 will come with dual-band (802.11 a/b/g/n) Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. It also features a 2MP front-facing camera, a 3MP rear camera, two speakers and an 8.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, which is incredibly thin at just 8.6mm (at its thickest point), is powered by a dual-core processor and will be running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, although it could be receiving an upgrade to Android 3.1. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 will come in both 16GB and 32GB models.
