Samsung has just revealed that its Galaxy Tab 7.7 will soon be available on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
The company made the announcement today at the CES event in Las Vegas, confirming rumors that have been buzzing for weeks. The 7.7-inch tablet will sport a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED Plus display and will pack an unnamed 1.4GHz dual core processor. Equipped with 1GB RAM and 16GB of built-in storage, the tablet will offer up to 32GB of space thanks to a microSD slot. The Android 3.2 Honeycomb-based device will feature an infrared transmitter, a 3MP AF camera with flash and a 2MP front-facing shooter. Like all of Sammy’s slates, the LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab 7.7 will have the TouchWiz UI onboard, along with the company’s media and social hubs, as well as Peel Smart Remote, Wi-Fi Direct and AllShare.
Weighing in at 12 ounces, the device will be relatively lightweight and will be offered with optional accessories, including a keyboard dock, a multimedia dock, a USB/SD adapter kit, a book cover case and an HDTV adapter. In addition to Verizon’s LTE network, the Samsung slate will also feature support for Wi-Fi a/b/g/n.
During our hands on with the tablet at IFA back in September, the most striking feature was definitely the Super AMOLED Plus screen, which blew away the displays of competitors like the iPad 2 and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. During a comparison of inside and outdoors, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 held up in all lighting conditions.
Samsung neglected to mention pricing or availability, but we will be sure to keep you posted as the story develops.
