Pocket-Lint: It’s time to reboot the tablet. Right now, the same word applies to everything from 6-inch jumped-up ebook readers to hulking great 10-inch slabs of glass. Pocket-lint is drawing a line in the sand: everything 9-inches and up is a tablet, everything smaller is a tablette – and here’s one of the finest, the 8.9-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab, er, 8.9.
Like Samsung’s original (7-inch) Galaxy Tab, the sleek 8.9 screams to be picked up, fondled lightly and tossed into a bag. It’s smart and powerful, with 1.2GHz dual-core silicon running Honeycomb 3.1 and Samsung’s impressive TouchWiz skin. It’s got a superb screen and some fun motion features, too.
