In what we’d call the most useless teaser of the year, Samsung attempt to talk up their upcoming 8.9″ Galaxy Tab. The device itself is hardly show in any detail with quick flashes of computer generated renders the closest we come to the real thing. From the last render we see, it looks as though it’ll be in the shape of an iPad, but we could be wrong. It also doesn’t terribly thin like in the last teaser picture we saw. We’ll certainly find out next Tuesday when it’s launched at CTIA in the US. What do you guys think? Is 8.9″ the perfect size for you?

Curious to know what size is best. Tech companies are getting very good at getting people believe they can’t do without extra gadgets to survive. We apparently now need a laptop/computer, a phone and now even a tablet if we are to live our lives to the fullest and be productive. I’m curious to know if the Samsung range of tablets allow for actual phone calling. I saw in a tech mag (T3 Aus?) the 10 inch one has proper calling, SMS, etc with a Vodaphone sim. If this is true of their range I might be swayed in trialling… Read more »
