Samsung adds new Galaxy Tab the 7.7

Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 Product Image (1).jpgSamsung is back with its latest take on the tablet PC. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 is a 7inch tablet that can also handle phone and video calls as well as deliver all manner of entertainment features.

Samsung has also supercharged the screen and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the world’s first tablet to feature the a Super AMOLED Plus display. The company claims that the Super AMOLED Plus display allows for a wider range of colours with greater separation between lights and darks, making images incredibly vivid.

The tablet’s other USP is that it is incredibly thin (7.89mm) and light (335 grams) which apparently makes it even more pocket-friendly.

There are a couple of other iPad busting features on board too in that is also very fast with a state of the art 1.4GHz dual core processor and it is compatible with the HSPA+ 21 Mbps mobile phone network (the fastest version of 3G available in Europe) for quicker uploads and downloads.

Other features include 10 hours of video playback battery life,a three mega pixel camera, the latest version of Android – 3.2 Honeycomb OS – on board and support MicroSD cards of up to 32GB, 1080p high definition video playback and access to Samsung’s hub services which includes games, eBooks, music and more.

No news yet on price, launch date or whether Apple is thinking about taking out an injunction to stop it going on sale.
