Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 And Galaxy Player: Visual Tour

Apple lawsuits haven't stopped Samsung from forging ahead with new additions to its lineup of Galaxy devices: the Galaxy Tab 8.9, a scaled-down version of the existing Galaxy Tab; and the Galaxy Player 4.0 and 5.0 media devices, which are essentially versions of the Galaxy S phones minus the phone components. The Player devices are powered by Android 2.35 ("Gingerbread"), and the Tab by Android 3.1 ("Honeycomb").

The Samsung press event in New York City was held in a newly-opened showcase in Time Warner Center off Columbus Circle--a space that apparently belonged to a Borders outlet before its demise, surrounded by everything from a Williams-Sonoma store to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
