Samsung is ready to launch yet another tablet at the CTIA Wireless 2011 event on March 22 in Florida, US. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9-inch tablet will be the third tablet in the Galaxy Tab family. SamFirmware reportedthat the company has already setup a dedicated page for the Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 Special Episode on March 22. So after the 7-inch and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab tablets, we ll get to see the 8.9-inch tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab life teaser at the Samsung Unpacked website mentions numbers 78910 in sort of an obvious sequence. Here the 7 obviously stands for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab, while 10 stands for Galaxy Tab 10.1 that was recently unveiled at the Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona a week ago. Now it's implied that Samsung will introduce an 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab with Android 3.0 Honeycomb running on it. The Samsung Unpacked Mobile 2011 landing page has a tablet that carries the same background as the one in Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet press images running Android 3.0 Honeycomb. 

Samsung has used dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 SoC processor for 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab, while the 7-inch Galaxy Tab uses 1GHz Hummingbird CPU. So the Galaxy Tab 8.9 may use the new Exyonos family of Mobile processors.

In the past, netbooks were launched in different screen sizes that included 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch and even 11-inch models. With a majority of OEMs getting into the Netbook market, it has become overcrowded. Instead of making it easy for consumers to choose their first computer OEMs, they bombarded them with multiple options and continue to confuse them. I just hope that the tablets don't see the same fate.
