World’s first Super AMOLED tablet unveiled

South Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab 7.7, with the same Super AMOLED Plus display as the Galaxy S II.

The Samsung Galaxy tab 7.7 was launched at Berlin’s IFA consumer electronics event this week, as the fifth tablet in the Galaxy series – with the tab, tab 10.1, tab 10.1v and tab 8.9 making up the rest of the family.

This latest addition to the range arrives with the same quality super AMOLED plus touch display that’s found in their flagship Galaxy S II handset, only with a 7.7-inch WXGA screen instead of a 4.3-inch display.

Powering the tablet is a 1.4GHz dual core processor, where the device is only 7.89 millimetres thin and weighs in at 335 grams – with HSPA+ 21Mbps capabilities and WIFI channel bonding, for an improved network connection.

The 7.7 runs from the latest Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.2 OS with the Samsung TouchWiz UI overlay, with support for 32GB microSD cards and a 5,100 mAh battery, which provides up to 10 hours of video playback.

No prices or arrival dates have been released as yet by Samsung for the Galaxy tab 7.7, but judging by their recent track record there is usually a long lead time between the announcement and final shipping date.
