Samsung to split the difference?

Well, well. The tablet market just keeps on getting more and more crowded. Already we have a bunch of 10-inch models - from the iPad to the HP TouchPad and the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10 - and a bunch of 7-inch models, from the original Samsung Galaxy Tab to the HTC Flyer.

But is that enough of a range? Or do we need an extra size range between 7 and 10 inches? If these reports are to be believed, Samsung reckons we do. They're apparently preparing an 8.9-inch version of the Galaxy Tab for release this summer.

That'd give them a pretty broad range of Android non-phone devices, from the small Galaxy Player to the full-size Tab 10. But will other manufacturers follow them into this brave new 9-inch world? We'll have to wait and see.
