Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Hands-On: Bright, Crisp Display, 4G LTE Speeds


LAS VEGAS –First shown off at IFA Berlin in September, Samsung officially released the Galaxy Tab 7.7 to U.S. customers at CES 2012. We got some hands-on time with this 7.7-inch tablet, which boasts a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED display and 4G LTE connectivity through Verizon Wireless. 

Like its (slightly) smaller brother, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, we were impressed with how small and light the Tab 7.7 is – just 0.31 inches thick, and just 12 ounces in weight. With a footprint of 7.7 x 5.2 inches, it won’t take up much more space in your bag than the 7.6 x 4.8 x 0.39-inch Tab 7.0 Plus.

Also like the Tab 7.0 Plus, the Tab 7.7 has an infrared port along one side and the Peel universal remote control app preloaded. However, the Tab 7.7 has a more powerful 1.4-GHz dual-core processor. The rear camera on the Tab 7.7 has a resolution of 3MP and is capable of shooting 720p video. The front-facing camera has a 2-MP resolution.

Of course, the big news is that the Tab 7.7 will be able to connect to Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network, which means you’ll have to buy this tablet on contract; pricing has yet to be released.
