Samsung announced two new Android 3.0 Galaxy Tab tablets Tuesday boasting both are the world’s thinnest. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 are 8.6mm thin (or 0.34-inches) which is about 0.2mm thinner than the Apple iPad 2.
Samsung introduced a Galaxy Tab 10.1 for the European market at Mobile World Congress, but the 10.1 model introduced Tuesday has different specifications and is slightly thinner. Samsung’s new Galaxy Tabs blow the Motorola Xoom–the only shipping Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet to date-out of the water, 12.9mm thick (or 0.51-inches).
