Samsung may announce an 8.9-inch Galaxy Tab tablet at the CTIA Wireless trade show on March 22, according to a press conference invitation sent out by Samsung this morning.

The invite asks "What's your Tab life?" with the numbers "78910." The Android-powered Galaxy Tab already exists in 7-inch and 10.1-inch sizes. Last month, rumors said Samsung was prepping an 8.9-inch version, which would fit the "89" between the 7 and 10 on the invitation.

"Curious about the secret behind 78910? Come discover what the buzz is all about and join us on our journey as we experience a world of endless technological possibility. We'll unveil our latest mobile products and innovations and explore the exciting new consumer lifestyles they make possible," the invite reads.


Samsung's 7-inch Galaxy Tab is currently the top-selling tablet behind Apple's iPad, leading Apple CEO Steve Jobs to take potshots at the product during his iPad 2 presentation earlier this week. Jobs repeated a notorious misquote where a Samsung executive supposedly said sales were "small" when the executive actually said "smooth." Samung says it has shipped more than 2 million Galaxy Tabs since it first went on sale in November 2010.

Yesterday, Rob Mesirow, vice president of the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), said a "significant" tablet would be announced at the CTIA trade show, but it's unclear whether he meant this Galaxy Tab or another model.

We'll be at CTIA from March 22-24 providing full coverage.
