GottaBeMobile shares the news about the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and a video they shot with the tablet at CES.
Samsung’s other, other 7-inch Honeycomb tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, will be available through Verizon Wireless starting later this week on March 1. The slim 7-incher will cost $499 with a two year contract (yes, with) for Verizon’s 4G LTE service.
Before you plotz from sticker shock, keep in mind that the Tab 7.7 is pretty tricked out for a small tablet. It boasts a Super AMOLED Plus display, a 1280 x 800 resolution, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a USB Host port that supports HDMI out.
Still, $499 on contract is a pretty hefty price. Could this be why Samsung isn’t doing so well in the tablet market? (Personally, I think the fact that they keep releasing 7-inch tablets within weeks of each other is kind of a problem.)
It’s not because their tablets aren’t good. When we did a hands-on with the 7.7 at CES we liked what we saw.
