The tablet is a smaller version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and has all the features of its bigger brother except for the weight and the thickness.

There's a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, Android 3.1 Honeycomb, 16GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), a 8.9-inch 1,280 by 800 pixels capacitive display, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 2.0, a three megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front facing one, TV out, a 6100mAh battery plus Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface and Samsung's Readers Hub, Music Hub and Premium Social Hub.

The tablet is only 8.9mm thick and weighs a mere 465g. The Galaxy Tab family grew from a single unit (the original 7-inch model) to one that now includes a 7.7 inch model, an 8.9-inch one, a 10.1-inch version and a number of variants as well.
