Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Fully Revealed (Photos)

Tomorrow, Samsung is expected to announce the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, their latest Android 3.0 tablet. From these shots we procured from CTIA, you can see that Samsung is rolling out a pretty deep interface on top of Android Honeycomb. It’s comprised of the Live Panel homescreen, complete with custom widgets, plus an interesting app switcher that provides BlackBerry PlayBook-like app switching with live previews of the apps that are open in the background.

This shot also gives us a glimpse into the specs: the 8.9″ display will rock 1280×800 resolution, granting it higher pixel density than the Motorola Xoom, which has the same resolution but on a larger screen. It’ll be very thin at just 8.6mm, and will weight a reasonable 470 grams. The CPU is a dual core 1GHz chip.
