    It looks like Verizon is valuing the newest Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet just a bit on the high side. Supposedly, according to this leaked internal Verizon doc, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 will debut sometime between February and August, (that's a big window), for $499.99. That seems quite steep for a 7.7 inch tablet. Perhaps when the actual launch date gets close to fruition, they will reprice the product according to the prevailing market at the time. If not, then I suspect VZW will be sitting on a glut of practically unsellable tabs, considering that $500 dollar price-point will net folks a ton of other more powerful and larger tablets.

    Thanks for the tip, Anonymous!

    It's doomed at that price.

    When you actually look at that 7.7" HD SuperAMOLED+ screen, you'll literally throw your wallet at the nearest sales person. Promise. It's probably the best panel I've ever seen. Ever. On anything.

    It better "transform into a freaking jet and fly me to my own private island" to get me to throw my wallet at a sales-person. A very impressive screen is important, but I am skeptical that this can find any success at that price point unless it did something no other tablet can do.

    For what I paid, $570, I feel I got a great tablet. The best panel on the planet, Exynos at 1.4GHz that I have not been able force a hiccup out of, SDXC support (I currently run a 64GB SanDisk microSD in it), surprisingly good sound quality, and 12hr+ battery life out a single charge. Between the Playbook (which I also currently have), the OG Transformer tablet (which I had for about 3-4 weeks)... I absolutely do not regret paying what I did for this tablet. The only thing I wish it were better at were speaker quality. The Playbook has amazing speakers, where the 7.7 has mediocre speaker quality at best.
