If you were ever curious as to why Android tablets have had such a hard time making any consumer headway, moves like the most recent one from Samsung should give you a pretty good idea.
Samsung is finally pricing the WiFi version of the upcoming Galaxy Tab 8.9 --and it's not exactly pretty. The 16GB version of the tablet will sell for $469, while the 32GB version will run for $569. Interested in picking one up? We didn't think so. With a screen size smaller than that of the iPad, Samsung's asking price for its 8.9-inch tablet is a hair short of absurd. We can only imagine what the official 3G pricing is going to look like.
