The tablet market has been heating up in recent weeks.

They have announced their new Galaxy Tab lineup that they have called the “thinnest mobile tablets” in the world at this time. The new tablets will have both 10.1 inch and 8.9 inch displays. These tablets will be a bit thinner than the iPad, and will be only 8.6 millimeters in width, and will weigh only 595 grams, which is much less than other tablets. The smaller, 8.9 inch display version will only weigh a total of 470 grams, which is nearly as little as some of the heavier smart phones out on the market.
The devices will run on Android 3.0 honeycomb and will have a 1GHz dual core processor. The rear camera on the devices will be three megapixels and will also feature a 2 megapixel front facing camera that is able to record videos up to 1080p HD. All in all,t eh recently announced devices surpass the expectations of the users that have been eagerly awaiting the next version of the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy ( Tab).
