The much anticipated Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is here in Malaysia! If you’re confused already, please know that Samsung is THE Android manufacturer who has a tablet for anyone out for an Android tablet in the market today.
From their earlier models of the Samsung Galaxy Tab (7” Android OS 2.X Froyo tablet) to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (10.1” Android OS 3.X Honeycomb tablet) to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 (8.9” version of the previous model) to the Samsung Galaxy Note (5.3” phone/tablet hybrid, running Android OS 2.X Gingerbread) to Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus (7” Android OS 3.X Honeycomb tablet) to recently announced Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7” updated version of their original 7” tablet) and now…
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 launched 16 Feb 2012, is the world’s FIRST tablet with a Super AMOLED Plus display.
The gorgeous and innovative tablet has been on my wish list ever since the announcement months ago. It’s 0.7” wider than the previous Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus model, but packs much higher-end specs and looks to aim for the high-end user and the more fashion savvy crowd.
Its brushed metal backing, 340 g weight and slim 7.89mm thick thinness is absolutely drool worthy.
Here’s a quick overview of the specification of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Android tablet:-
- 7.7” 1280×800 (WXGA) Super AMOLED Plus display
