Samsung to unveil very thin tablet on March 22

Samsung has published a teaser image of a unannounced tablet which will be announced at CTIA on March 22
Samsung has currently announced two tablets. The 7 inch Galaxy Tab is available in stores now, and the 10 inch Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be available later this year. Samsungs executive VP Lee Don-Joo said last week when Apple announced its iPad 2 that "we will will have to improve the parts that are inadequate. Apple made it very thin". "The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was to be priced higher than the 7-inch Galaxy Tab, but we will have to think that over" he continued.
The original Galaxy Tab was priced at USD 900 while the Apple iPad 2s are priced from USD 499 to 829. Samsung either needs to match that price, or have a better product. We haven't tested the Galaxy Tab 10.1 thoroughly so we are not sure about the later, so that means a lower price for the Tab 10.1.
The facebook picture does not reveal much, except that this device is very thin and it has a 3.5 mm audio jack. Looking at the picture and the 3.5 mm plug, we would guess that this tablet is below 10 mm thick.
So what does the number 78910 mean? The first Galaxy Tab was a 7 inch, then the 10 inch. Should we expect a 8.9 inch tablet?
