There has been a lot of anticipation for the introduction of an LTE enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 option, especially after the unexpected poor performance of its predecessor. Since Galaxy Tab 8.9 was introduced way back in march, it has had an extremely poor performance compared to its siblings Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 7, all blame games have been directed towards its unrealistic pricing structure. Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 has ever since enjoyed a significant level of popularity recording an impressive performance at Amazon, on the other hand, Galaxy Tab 10.1 boasts of a larger screen size with similar hardware configuration as that of Galaxy Tab 8.9; for this reason, Galaxy Tab 8.9 found it difficult to outperform its siblings. The introduction of Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G (LTE) enabled is expected to spur a major twist in the popularity of Samsung Galaxy Tabs.

Despite the integration of 4G LTE feature, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G LTE has maintained its predecessor’s spectacular 8.6mm slim design weighing only 455g which groups it among the lightest tablets in the industry. Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G LTE was introduced alongside an upgraded version of Galaxy Sii featuring 4G (4th Generation) LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology.
