November 17, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It seems legal disputes do not pose much challenge to the ever determined Samsung. Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, world’s first mobile tablet featuring super AMOLED Plus display has arrived at the FCC for testing and approval.

Samsung Galaxy Tab devices, which were scheduled to be formally unveiled earlier this month, are waiting in many warehouses across the world to get unleashed. The moment the injunction, which Apple filed against Samsung’s tablets, is lifted by the court these devices would reach the masses.

“The new Galaxy Tab 7.7 demonstrates Samsung’s commitment to offering consumers the most choice in the mobile tablet market,” said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung’s Mobile Communications Business during a press conference at IFA in September 2011. “The Galaxy Tab 7.7’s ultra-thin design and WXGA Super AMOLED Plus display are impressive differentiators in the tablet marketplace and pillars of our ultimate goal of meeting a wide variety of consumer needs.”

The powerful Galaxy Tab 7.7, which houses a 1.4GHz dual core processor, measures just 7.89 millimeters thin and weighs only 335 grams (12 ounces); thus providing ultimate portability to the device. Galaxy Tab 7.7, also known as GT-P6810, should most likely be a 16GB WiFi-only version, as no mention of wireless bands could be found in the version seen at the Federal Communications Commission.

The tablet is powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb and it has been optimized for a 7-inch tablet with a new compatibility zoom mode. It features HSPA+ 21 Mbps network, Wi-Fi Channel Bonding and is preloaded with the full suite of Google Mobile Services, including access to more than 250,000 applications on Android Market.

Excitement is quite high as the world looks forward to see this device hitting the store shelves. If you are all eyes for this device too, then stay tuned and we will soon bring you more news.
