Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 May Aim at Eating into Apple iPad Space

September 2, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We are getting to see an increasing number of Samsung devices as of late. The latest in the line up is the Galaxy Tab 7.7, the first slate of its kind to feature a 7.7 inch Super AMOLED display. The tablet comes to the market where Apple’s iPad simply rules and those running on Google’s Android are still struggling. Samsung, along with Sony and many others, are trying hard to change the status quo. That is of course what the recent line of announcements at the IFA hint at.

The 7.7 inch display of the tablet with a resolution of 1280 x 800 uses the company’s active matrix organic light emitting diode technology. It means good contrast, brightness and colors. The tablet runs Android 3.2 and is powered by a dual core processor running at 1.4 GHz, it has 16/32/64 GB internal memory.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 sports a 3 megapixel rear facing camera with an LED flash and a 2 megapixel front facing camera. A 5 mAh battery comes good for up to 10 hours of video. Connectivity aspects include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) USB 2.0 host and Bluetooth.

Besides, there is Samsung’s TouchWiz software that adds a tray of frequently used apps and ability to customize the home screen with photos or live feeds. It also comes with a compatibility mode for showing small-screen smartphone apps at a larger size.

There has been no word on price yet, and the availability ‘depends on the market’. Well, it seems to be aggravating Apple who wants a recall of Galaxy products. What do you feel?
