The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 is meant to be available from Best Buy on Thursday but we were able to pick one up in Taiwan to unbox it for you. Samsung has been claiming that the Tab 8.9 is one of the world’s thinnest tablets at only 0.34 inches thick.

In case you wanted a quick run down on the specifications on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 its running Android 3.1 Honeycomb with a pretty tragic TouchWiz interface which we feel really slows down the system. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 will offer an 8.9-inch WXGA 1280×800 pixel display, a dual-core 1GHz processor, and 16GB of memory. A 2-megapixel camera will grace the front, while a 3-megapixel autofocus camera with flash will be in back. The tablet will support 1080p HD video playback and come with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, USB 2.0, and Bluetooth 3.0 for connectivity.

Samsung has integrated several applications including Android Market, Google Maps, Google Talk, Voice Search, and Adobe Flash, and its own built-in hubs, such as Media Hub, Social Hub, and Music Hub.

    Actually the WiFi version does have a 1Ghz dual core according to the official Samsung product page. The LTE version however is supposed to have a 1.5Ghz. So maybe a little slack in your own fact checking.

    Thanks for that, since we’re not based in the US, I didn’t look into LTE, i’ll be more diligent next time! Cheers!
