T-Mobile shows off Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
LTE-enabled 9in fondleslab spied
IFA 2011 Samsung didn't show off its Galaxy Tab 8.9 9in Android tablet at IFA, but T-Mobile did - and in an LTE-enabled form.
According to the network operator, the 8.9 will sport 32GB of storage - add more using Micro SD cards - and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. It will have the inevitable front- and rear-facing cameras.
Think of it as a scaled up Galaxy Tab 7.7 - a machine it resembles very closely, you won't be surprised to learn.
This version of the 8.9 will run Android 3.2 so it probably won't be out until later in the year - like so many Android 3.2 devices announced at IFA, from Sony, Toshiba, Medion and others.
The LTE connectivity will be good for downloads of up to 100Mb/s, T-Mobile claimed. ®
The LTE connectivity will be good for downloads of up to 100Mb/s, T-Mobile lied.
Edited for accuracy.
...but it's not an IPAD!!!
I mean, this is not really an IPAD, is it? I bet it's not even built by APPLE itself, so why does tmobile want to sell it? If they can't afford IPADs, they should wait until they can. I bet you can only get programs and stuff for it, not even real APPS!
which means you can use up any reasonably priced data limit in about 5 seconds.

Ah, right. Proprietary charger and no HDMI or USB then. Funny the OEMs are building some very good phones and such fine examples as the Galaxy S II are certainly making Apple nervous. However as far as tablet space goes at the moment (with certain honourable exceptions such as Asus' Transformer and Sammy's 10 incher), the Dark Lord of Cupertino must be laughing his socks off.
The term "up to" ...
includes zero and even negative values. No lying necessary.
In fact, the only logical reason, given the accurate definition of the terms in the original sentence, for one to argue that T-Mobile was lying is if one were convinced that the LTE connectivity would, in fact, be good for downloads at speeds over 100Mb/s.
If that actually was your point, I apologize.
