Samsung has finally launched its most stunning tablet device yet, to the Malaysian market – the stunning GALAXY Tab 7.7, the world’s first tablet to feature a Super AMOLED Plus display. Encased with an all-new metal backing (yes, to less plastic!), the desirable tablet is equipped with a dual-core 1.4Ghz processor and runs Google Android Honeycomb 3.2. The GALAXY Tab 7.7 weighs only 340 grams and is an anorexic 7.89mm thin.
Samsung positions the GALAXY Tab 7.7 as a premium tablet, recognisable by its new metal exterior and stunning Super AMOLED Plus display. As I can attest in my previous video preview, this baby isn’t just fast but also includes fast connectivity with HSPA+ (21Mbps) and telephony, allowing you to also make voice and video calls. Not to be forgotten is also a huge 5,100 mAh battery that provides up to 10 hours of video playback, useful for the lonely nights catching up on the latest movies viewed on the 7.7″ 1280×800 pixel WXGA display.
The GALAXY Tab 7.7 also includes a decent 3MP auto-focus rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera and to expansion junkies – a microSD slot. The tablet comes bundled with 16GB of flash memory as standard kit. The GALAXY Tab 7.7 retails at RM 2,099 and is available now at all Samsung retail outlets and authorized dealers.
