Busy couple of Android-related days here. I’ve just made live my full length review of the LG Ally for Verizon. It’s a very slick Android 2.1 smartphone with a great slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a WVGA…
Samsung produces the most successful line of Android devices in the world. For their tablets, they have taken a novel approach by creating a variety of choices 7-inch, 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch and, now, 7.7-inch tablet. Most of these tablets posses enough differentiating factors to make them stand out, and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is a prime example of that with a display that blows any competing tablet out of the water.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE features an incredibly gorgeous7.7 inch HD Super AMOLED Plus display measuring 1280 x 800 pixels as well as a Micro-SD card slot. It’s interesting to note that both of these features are not available on any of the other Galaxy Tablets. Other specs include 4G data support from Verizon’s speedy LTE network, a 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor, a 3 megapixel rear shooter with flash, and the device itself comes preloaded with Android Honeycomb 3.2 with TouchWiz UI on top. The size of this Tablet really sits right in the sweet spot for tablet sizes, and it’s small enough to feel very portable, and not too small that it feels llike an over-sized smartphone.
Furthermore, it has a sufficiently large battery that can power its 1.4GHz, dual-core processor through a full day’s use, and its industrial design is attractive and feels very comfortable to hold. While using the device I had nothing but a great experience, and it blew me away with its performance, I didn’t run into any lag no matter what I threw at it. The 4G LTE speed from Verizon is amazing and flawless like always. Both the 2 megapixel front and 3 megapixel rear camera do their job very well. My favorite feature of the tablet is, without a doubt, the display. It’s beautiful to see an AMOLED Plus display on a 7.7-inch screen. This tablet will make anyone who purchases one a happy camper, and will definitely garner jealous scowls from iPad owners.
The only downfall for this device is its $499 on-contract price. That’s a lot of money to pay for a device that still requires its own 2 year data contract to operate. You can still get it without a contract for $699 which is a very pricey tag for an Android Tablet.

So what are your thoughts? Is a 7.7-inch screen the perfect size for you? Any thoughts on the AMOLED display? For those of you eager for AMOLED in a tablet, but desiring a bit more power, stay tuned for Toshiba’s quad core AMOLED tablet that is coming to market soon.
Honestly, if you’re looking for a tablet that is blazing fast, has the best looking display on the market, and is a highly portable size, then the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the one to get.
