The Verizon Wireless carried Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE tablet has been announced at the CES 2012. The tablet specs are a definite improvement on the original Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The Super AMOLED Plus 7.7-inch screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. This is, as you would expect, a multi-touch capacitive touchscreen. A dual-core 1.4GHz processor powers this Android 3.2 tablet that will no doubt see the upgrade to Android 4.0. Since this is a Samsung tablet, it figures that the TouchWiz interface will be there.
There’s 1GB of RAM on this tablet weighing 0.74 pounds and measuring 0.31 inches in thickness. 16GB of internal memory is boosted by 32GB of external storage. A 3MP rear camera with LED flash has a 2MP front camera for company, the front camera being ideal for video chatters; point to note that the mega pixel capacity of the front camera is pretty good when you consider that so many tablets out there have a front camera with 0.3MP to 1.3MP capacity. The Google Android Market is available on this tablet. 4G speeds on the Verizon LTE network mean that you can stream multimedia fast and download even the most graphics-heavy pages with ease. There is talk of a WiFi-only model in the pipeline.
The Readers HUB application on this device enables access to Zinio and Kobo. The Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 can function as a universal remote and has an Infra Red port on one side. A 5100 mAh battery powers this tablet and gives a use-time of up to 10 hours.
