CTIA 2014 Super Mobility Week: Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1

1:54 /

The iPad 2 looks to have some competition from the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1. Check out the world's thinnest tablets in our First Look video from CTIA 2011.

-Hey, everyone. I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com, and we're here in Orlando for CTIA 2011 where Samsung unveiled 2 new tablets: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Unfortunately, the devices don't turn on, but we wanted to show you the-- the tablet because they are the world's thinnest tablets. They both measure 8.6 mm thin. So, that makes it thinner than the iPad 2, which comes in at 8.8 mm. These really beautifully-designed tablets has rounded edges, so it's really comfortable to hold, and it has a nice weight to it, and it has a nice premium feel unlike the 7-inch Galaxy Tab which I thought felt a little bit plasticky. I tend to like my devices a little smaller, so the 8.9-inch tablet really suits me. I'm-- I'm really loving the design on this. Both tablets will be running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but on top of that, they are gonna be using Samsung's TouchWiz UX user interface, which is the first customizable user interface on top of Android. Some of the features include live panels where you add widgets and shortcuts, as well as an app tray that will help with multitasking. Also, it will have a dual-core processor, so you should get some good performance out of these tablets. They will be available this summer in the US as a Wi-Fi version. There will be a 16-gigabyte model and a 32-gigabyte model. HSPA Plus version will also come out this summer, and we are told that LTE and WiMAX will come out later this year. I'm really looking forward to checking out these tablets. Again, this is the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, and I'm Bonnie Cha from CNET.com.
