The Galaxy 7.7 is powered by a dual core 1.4GHz processor with 1GB of RAM, and will apparently come in three flavours – 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It has N wireless on board, Bluetooth 3.0 and has a built-in GPS.
It’s a compact and lightweight tablet with a 7.7in screen. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 has a fantastic design that is both superbly constructed and super thin, but it is unfortunately let down by outdated Android software that dampens the overall user experience.

The biggest challenge for Samsung is convincing shoppers that the Tab 7.7 is worth $300 more than the Kindle Fire up front, not including the monthly data plan. That’s a pretty tall order, despite the Kindle Fire’s limited app selection. But if you want speedy Web access on the go, a better screen, and faster performance and the ability to control your home theater–this slate is worth the splurge.
