With all honesty this tablet is amazing it does very well with anything you throw at it from multitasking to smooth graphics this tablet will do it all. While using the Tab 8.9 I experienced little to no lag regardless of how many tasks I was attempting to accomplish.

Until the Galaxy Tab 8.9 gets an official, stable release of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Galaxy Tab 8.9 users have an option of trying out an unofficial alpha build of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. A team of coders from XDA Developers has put together a ROM which gives many users a taste of what it would be like to run ICS on their Galaxy Tab 8.9.
Before you get too excited about this preview, there are a few snags that are worth mentioning. This release is quite buggy. Some of the features that don’t work are the camera, 3G, YouTube HD videos, and Google Voice Search. Wi-Fi, however, can be used, as well as GPS and Bluetooth. If you’re willing to [...]

The more, the merrier. Faster and stronger. These seem to be Samsung’s battlecries for its next wave of attacks against its competitors. Proof of that is the bagful of new upcoming Android phones that the Korean electronics company will be unveiling at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA 2011), an international consumer electronics fair to be held in Berlin this week.
Under the “faster and sronger” category are 4G LTE versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, both of which Samsung has confirmed to be debuted along with other Android and non-Android Samsung handsets at the IFA 2011.
