BGR is reporting that Samsung will begin pre-orders through Best Buy in the US for their Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablet that was originally announced back in March.

Pre-orders will start at $469.99 for the 16GB model and an extra hundred at $569.99 for the 32GB model. The Galaxy Tab 8.9 runs Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and includes a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, built-in WiFi, and a 1280 x 600 8.9-inch display. Of course the 8.9-inch model lands between Samsung’s 7-inch tab and iPad-like Galaxy Tab 10.1. The current models listed on Best Buy are WiFi only.

There is no word on exactly when the devices will ship, but rumor has it sometime before the end of the month with in-store pick ups available around the same time.  We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
