The Samsung Galaxy Tab in its 7.7-inch display screen avatar has an impressive battery life and a sleek and lightweight design, but much of the hard work done by Samsung is undone by releasing it in the old version of Android 3.2 OS- Honeycomb. Better user experience will however, come in with the OS upgrade to the ICS.
The Slim Beauty
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the thinnest and the lightest tablet slate around compared to the likes of Toshiba AT1S0, Acer Iconia A200, and BlackBerry PlayBook. The light form factor and ultra slim design make the unconventional screen size of 7.7 inches look reasonable. The Galaxy Tab 7.7 weighs just 335 grams and is only a mere 7.9 mm thick. The screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800 and is of AMOLED plus quality. A sharp and pleasant view is obtained by using the resolution of a 10-inch slate.
The Android tablet comes with a dual processor from ARM called the Cortex A9 with an operating frequency of 1.4 GHz. Also, included are 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage memory, Wi-Fi connectivity and a microSD card slot. However, major downsides are that 3G connectivity and an updated Android OS is missing from its arsenal. These two things are the only things, which make it look unattractive what otherwise, have proven to be a commendable effort from Samsung. Hey, the HDMI out is missing along with the USB port which is necessary for these gadgets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has a 3 MP front facing camera and a 2 MP rear camera capable of 720p HD video recording. Image quality is not up to the mark with noise and color reproduction leaves a lot to be desired. The 5100mAh battery performance is said to be excellent.
