Default Is galaxy tab 8.9 better than...

the galaxy tab 2 10.1 or galaxy tab 2 7inch

the spec looks good on 8.9- same screen resolution, its lighter Dual core 1ghz vs 1.2ghz in tab 2. Better camera on 8.9? anything else?

i'm trying to decide between them its hard :/

I like it better than either because of the size. I can't compare speed or performance because I've not owned the other two, but you can't beat the 8.9 size as its small enough to be portable, but large enough for games and movies.

I agree with Jesslynn. I think 10" tabs are too big and heavy for reading and I think 7" is too small. The 8.9 is just right. Performance wise, the Galaxy Tab 8.9 does everything I need. I'm quite happy with it.
