If it’s okay for you to have a refurbished Galaxy Tab 8.9, then you can visit theAT&T website right now and buy the tablet for only $199.99 on a 2-year contract or $399.99 without contract.

The Galaxy Tab 8.9 will have the features of the 10.1 version including the 1280x800 screen resolution but in a smaller frame. The Tab 8.9 features a Tegra 2 pocessor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and Honeycomb OS flavored with Samsung’s TouchWiz.
