    BERLIN – Sept. 1, 2011 –Samsung Electronics Co.

The powerful Galaxy Tab 7.7 with a 1.4GHz dual core processor measures just 7.89 millimeters thin and weighs only 335 grams (12 ounces), making this tablet one of the most portable devices in the market.

    Brilliant Super AMOLED Plus display

    The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the first tablet that incorporates Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus display technology, delivering brilliant, high-contrast colors and a beautiful, crisp viewing experience. The Super AMOLED Plus display allows for a wider range of colors with greater separation between lights and darks, making images incredibly vivid.

    Sleek Design with Ultimate Portability

    The Galaxy Tab 7.7 provides ultimate portability and viewing quality within the Galaxy Tab portfolio, featuring a brighter display combined with a thinner and lighter design that easily fits in your jacket pocket or purse. The elegant, linear design features a stylish metal casing and rounded edges for a sleek look that’s comfortable to hold while you’re sitting or walking.

    Still, it's a little ironic: I came pretty close to picking up the Thrive, especially because owners were saying "yeah, it's on the thick side, but the replaceable battery and all those ports make up for it." And then Toshiba ditches the design and goes thin. Go figure.

    The best compromise for me was probably the Transformer (really liked the extra battery in the keyboard/dock) but then Asus announced THEIR next two tabs, the quad core with the Kal-El and the dual-core Slider. Sheesh, I'll probably never get off the sidelines.
