Update: Samsung has just launched the Tab 730 or 8.9 in India with a price tag of Rs.34,610 (MRP). However, you can find the tablet for as low as Rs.30,900, across some online stores. The Galaxy Tab 730 is identical to the 750 in every aspect, other than the screen size and battery capacity. If you were looking for something more portable and lighter, then the Tab 730 may just be a perfect fit for you.
The official announcement hasn’t come yet, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 730 aka. the Galaxy tab 8.9 has reportedly landed on Indian shores. Online shopping site Letsbuy has priced the Galaxy Tab 8.9 at Rs. 32,445 which is surprisingly higher than the price for the 750 – Rs. 32,000. It’s a little absurd considering the Galaxy Tab 10.1, as the name suggests has a bigger screen than the 8.9. The tablet is available for immediate purchase.

On the other hand, those wanting a relatively cheaper deal need to hold on for a while though as Flipkart have announced that product will come soon at a price of Rs. 30,900. Flipkart, however, have priced the 750 at 33,000.
The following are some of the highlights of the tablet:
- 8.9-inch LCD, Capacitive touchscreen with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution
- 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi with DLNA support and hot spot
- GPS with A-GPS support
