Today, I unbox the Verizon LTE variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. This tablet is packing some awesome hardware. In the specs department it features a 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos processor under the hood, Super AMOLED Plus capacitive touchscreen, measuring 7.7 inches, 800 x 1280 pixels with 16M colors, Touchwiz UX, microSD card slot expandable up to 32GB, 3.15 megapixel rear shooter capable of 720p video recording, a 2 megapixel camera up front for video chat, and Android 3.2 Honeycomb to power it all underneath. The tablet is released today March 1st, 2012 and is available on Verizon’s LTE network for $499.99 with a two-year agreement.
While the tablet isn’t running the latest build of Ice Cream Sandwich on launch day, it is said to be upgradeable to ICS some time in the near future. However for now we are dealt with a still very respectful build of Android Honeycomb 3.2 with TouchWiz on top. The 7.7 inch touch screen size really thrives in text input, and it feels like the size is perfect for those that might find themselves typing out emails on this bad boy.

For now check out the unboxing video below to get a first look and feel of the new Galaxy Tab 7.7.
We absolutely love this tablet. It’s the first tablet to come in at 7.7 inches, and there’s been a ton of enthusiasm for it ever since it first appeared in Europe not too long ago. As the only tablet with an AMOLED display on the market, for those that have come to love what the Galaxy S2 is offering, this might be worth a look. Also, with Verizon’s incredibly fast LTE connectivity on board, it might just be the one to get if you’re looking for a tablet with a great form factor, and a jaw-dropping display.
