Samsung Galaxy 8.9 HD Down To £249

While The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is still commanding premium prices, the price of its smaller brother, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 HD has been cut once more to a mere £249 at PC World with a free £10 voucher.

The Tab 8.9 is identical to the Tab 10.1 except for the screen size and its size and weight in general. You get a 1,280 by 800 pixels 8.9-inch capacitive display, a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC clocked at 1GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, WiFi, USB 2.0, Bluetooth, TV Out, a three megapixel rear camera plus a front facing one, a 6100mAh battery, Android 3.1 Honeycomb (upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich).

At 8.6mm, the tablet is one of the thinnest on the market and unless you either prefer an Android tablet with a bigger screen like the Motorola XOOM or a smaller, much cheaper non-Android tablet like the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 HD is a great buy.

Samsung released a number of tablets in 2012 like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 v2, the Galaxy Tab 10 v2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1. Many expect to see a new top of the range tablet though one which will take on the likes of the Asus Transformer Prime at the very top end of the market.
