Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets EU pricing
The German branch of Amazon, Amazon.de, has put up a page showing the pricing for Samsung’s forthcoming Galaxy Tab 8.9, and its set to cost a hefty EUR 606.50.
Announced back at MWC 2011 in February this year, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 is set to become the world’s thinnest tablet when it does go on sale. At just 8.6mm thick, the Tab 8.9 will steal away the (8.8mm) iPad 2’s crown.
It’s currently unclear as to whether the pricing shown above is for the Wi-Fi only or 3G + Wi-Fi model, but either way European customers seem to be getting a bit of a bum deal here. Samsung confirmed a while back that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 will cost $469 in the US, a fraction of the EUR 606.50 price tag shown here.
Along with its bigger brother, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the 8.9 is a super-slim tablet running Google’s latest Android Honeycomb operating system. It also features Nvidia’s superfast 1GHz Dual-Core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 3MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n and is available in 3 storage variants of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
