Senior Member - OP Thanks Meter 129 Posts: 3,329 Join Date: May 2005 Screen size comparison (7", 8.9", 9.7", 10.1") Got all the size comparisons using this calculator: http://www.silisoftware.com/tools/screen.php Number in bracket is mm. Code: ```Diagonal: 7.0" (16:10) --> W= 5.9" (149.86) and H=3.7" (93.98) Diagonal: 8.9" (16:10) --> W= 7.5" (190.50) and H=4.7" (119.38) Diagonal: 9.7" ( 4:3 ) --> W= 7.8" (198.12) and H=5.8" (147.32) Diagonal: 10.1" (16:10) --> W= 8.6" (218.44) and H=5.4" (137.16)``` Original question: Please if anyone can help me here. I am not good with math For the Samsaung Galaxy Tab 8.9" model. If the diagonal length of the screen is 8.9 inch, and the screen aspect ratio is 16:10. What is the screen height and width in milimiter? Thanks. Galaxy Nexus (Official yakju build): Android 4.1.2 "yakju" stock ROM, stock recovery, rooted ... fastboot unlocked REPLY

You would help a lot of ppl. Especially that it is next to impossible to go to the shop and play with 5 or 6 tablets before making a choice :(.

Then make mock ups of with and without micro sd slots. Geez guys, wait for the final product to come out and try for yourself. Other than that, just continue imagine it... REPLY

 gogol 26th May 2011, 09:00 AM Senior Member - OP Thanks Meter 129 Posts: 3,329 Join Date: May 2005 I need this comparison to help me choose between 8.9" v 10.1" I have an iPad2 as reference (screen size). The 8.9 probably is a bit too small (the height). Although the width is more or less the same with the iPad2.

 gogol 29th May 2011, 07:04 PM Senior Member - OP Thanks Meter 129 Posts: 3,329 Join Date: May 2005 I cant believe that I have done it. So, I made the mock up tablets from paper for both 8.9" and 10.1". And I think I will buy the 10.1". It is a bit wider than iPad2. Because the 8.9" is just too small. It is indeed more portable, but too small. Now I am convinced, the 10.1" is the way to go!
