The smaller version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, the 8.9, will apparently be available from Amazon UK from the 12th of August, with a suggested retail price of £605.34 for the 3G model, which is not as cheap as we'd expect.
Samsung told Techradar however that they were not going to release the tablet officially in the UK until later this year, which means that this tablet is possibly being sold as a grey unit by a third party, in this case a German company called ATELCO Computer AG.
There are a few other retailers including Superetrader, that are taking preorders for the device for much less (as little as £450 including delivery). The tablet is the latest model from Samsung and is just like its bigger brother, the Tab 10.1 - so much so that the only notable difference between the two is the screen size which in the case of the Tab 8.9, stands at ... 8.9 inches.
Both models share the same processor, screen resolution, cameras, operating system and memory; the Tab 8.9 therefore comes with a 1280x800 pixels display, an Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, Android 3.0 honeycomb with TouchWiz 4.0, a two-megapixel front facing camera and a three-megapixel rear one, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and is only 8.6mm thick.
