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. Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE tablet 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.

What price and further details?
When is this going to be available?
We've been teased enough about this tablet; when is it actually being released?
...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!

Edited for accuracy.
which means you can use up any reasonably priced data limit in about 5 seconds.
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.
Not a lie at all. I can run down the road at a speed approaching 30mph. Especially when closing time is close. How close I approach 30mph is something else altogether.
Doesn't mean that marketing like this sucks less though

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.
