Leaving no ‘screen size’ unused, Samsung have launched the Galaxy Tab 7.7, which as the name as the name suggests sports a 7.7-inch display. Could that 0.7 of an inch make all the difference from it being classified as an eReader type device to a laptop alternative?
The spec is certainly impressive with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, support for up to up to 64GB of memory, 3 megapixel camera (with autofocus), and a vivid WXGA resolution Super AMOLED Plus display. All that in a shapely 7.89mm thick shell.
Unlike its somewhat half-baked predecessor, the Froyo-toting original Galaxy Tab, the 7.7 comes with the full blown Android tablet OS, Honeycomb 3.2. It won’t leave you in the lurch when you’re on the go either as the 5100mAh battery is supposedly good for ten hours video playback.
Rather dizzyingly, Samsung now has Android devices with 2.8, 3.2, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 4, 4.3, 4.5, 5.3, 7, 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1 inch screens in its portfolio. However, as confusing as it may be for consumers choosing which device to invest in, this same scattergun approach paid dividends for the company in the early days when they were making feature phones.
