Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 – what you need to know

If you thought there was only one player in the tablet market, think again. Apple may still hold the tablet top spot, but Samsung is hot on its heels.

Of course, Samsung is no stranger to the world of tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab series has been working away in the background for some time now.

The Galaxy range offers a decent alternative to the iPad, and the various models (the 10.1, 8.9 and 7.0) give customers a real choice.

But these have been on the market for a while now, and Samsung is gearing up for its latest assault on Apple with the Galaxy Tab 7.7.

Despite being unveiled last year, we are yet to get a UK release for Samsung’s latest tablet. But with the iPad 3 due for release in the next couple of months, Samsung will be keen to get the 7.7 into stores.

And it can’t come soon enough, as the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is a truly wonderful tablet that will make other manufacturers really step up their game.

Galaxy Tab 7.7 display

There are many great things about the latest galaxy tab, but the screen is where Samsung really hopes to impress.

Bringing the same technology that features on the Galaxy S2 smartphone, the 7.7 is the world’s first tablet to include a Super AMOLED Plus display.

It looks stunning, delivering a 1280 x 800 resolution (the highest of any tablet), giving vivid colours and an ultra-sharp picture.

Galaxy Tab 7.7 size and weight

Another USP of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the weight of this device will have you doing a double-take. At just 340g, it feels as though it’s missing something on the inside.

This is partly down to the tablet’s size. At just under 20cm long and 13cm wide, it feels more like an ereader than a tablet. And at 7.89mm thick, it puts a lot of other devices to shame.

Galaxy Tab 7.7 processor

Once again, Samsung hasn’t disappointed on the inside either. With a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, as well as 1GB of RAM, the 7.7 gives a powerful performance.

The only slight disappointment is that the 7.7 runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb. While this is a perfectly good OS, we’d like to have seen ICS as standard. Let’s hope those upgrade promises come true.
