The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has finally landed in the US with Verizon mobile. It’s not actually surprising since we’ve seen it launched at the IFA last year. But here it is folks a new version of the 7-inch tablet!
I own the first version of galaxy tab 7 (wi-fi) and I still love it because of its size which is probably the main selling point of 7 inch tabs. Too bad there’s no software upgrade available yet for my tab.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is equipped with 1.4GHz dual core processor (Exynos CPU maybe?), 1GB RAM, 16GB internal and up to 32GB external storage. It has 3-megapixel auto focus camera at the back with flash and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls. The screen has a 7.7inch 1280×800 Super AMOLED Plus HD display at 197ppi. There is also an infrared transmitter for remote control supported devices. Who said IR is already obsolete? The new tab is 7.9mm (.31 inch) thin which is approximately 5mm thinner and 40g lighter than the first gen.
For now, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is powered by android honeycomb 3.2 and it is said to be upgradable to ICS in a not so distant future. I hope upgrading won’t be a problem on this device because the 7-inch wifi version is still stuck with Froyo.
