For those of you who feel that the Galaxy Tab 8.9 is too big and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is too small, the LTE-packing Galaxy Tab 7.7 should feel just right. And according to Verizon, the little 7-incher should be available March 1 on the big red network, just as we expected.
The GalTab 7.7 was announced way back in September alongside the international Galaxy Note, and as my controversial review proves, we’re already playing around with the Note here in the States. That said, a little memory refresh seems to be in order.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 sports a 1280×800 resolution Super AMOLED Plus display at (obviously) 7.7-inches. A 1.4GHz dual-core processor can be found under the hood, and both the front and back of the tablet are equipped with cameras, 2-megapixels and 3.2-megapixels respectively. The rear camera can shoot video in 720p.
Unfortunately, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 won’t ship with ICS so hopefully you’re a fan of Honeycomb. Even more unfortunately, the GalTab 7.7 wears a $499 on-contract price tag. This means it’s going up against the likes of a 10-inch iPad, or priced way more expensively than the $200 Kindle Fire.
The good news is that you have two whole days (thanks, leap year) to mull over these options. Good hunting.
