Comment: Large enough to enjoy a film on but smaller than a hardback book, 8.9 inches could be the perfect size for a tablet.

Good: is just like nexus 7
Comment: is ok
Comment: The battery life on the the Galaxy Tab is a definite plus. The extended charge supports my long hours of graphic design and AT&T's 4G LTE network (very fast here in NY).
Good: size of the screen n clearity, n even the os use here is sumwat good....
Bad: not handy for outdoor
Comment: if the os has windows 8 den it will be the best
Good: Slim, Light, Powerful
Bad: Nothing so far!
Comment: I've had my 8.9 for about 4 weeks now; I can't praise it enough! HD movies are crystal clear on the beautiful screen, and e-books are a delight to read, very easy on the eye.
I bought this to replace my iPad2, which to be honest was a disappointing experience from start to finish, and I have never looked back since.
Comment: Last year I got a 7" Tab, then I got a 10.1" Tab and now I also got an 8.9" Tab.
The 8.9" is more portable than the 10.1" and the screen size is more usable than the 7". This has got to be the perfect size.
Good: it look nice
Bad: It's copy of iPad2 and price is the same but quality is worse..
Comment: Android doesn't have enough applications for tablet.
This device is looking just like copy of iPad 2.
It doesn't have Android 4.0 update and case of device is plastic.
Good: All the power of the ipad 2 but smaller lighter and with flash
Bad: Taking to long to arrive in UK
Comment: All the power of the ipad 2 but smaller lighter and with flash.
I own the 7 inch tab which is perfectly portable for a train commuter like me but it came with fro yo which was for Samsung mobiles so is a little
judder y on some of its features honeycomb is more tablet friendly and so the 8.9 is for me but launch date delays means I may have to go for 10.1.
