Samsung Galaxy 7.7 Tablet

Launched at IFA 2011, Samsung's Galaxy 7.7 Tablet is 7.89 millimeters thin and weighs only 12 ounces (335 grams). It incorporates the company's “Super AMOLED Plus” display technology, which it says delivers “brilliant, high-contrast colors and a beautiful, crisp viewing experience.” The device has a battery that provides up to 10 hours of video playback time, Samsung says.

With a 7.7-inch screen, as the name suggests, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 features a 1.4GHz dual core processor and is available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 also features access to Samsung’s Music Hub service, which offers 15 million songs for preview, download, and play. The Readers Hub service features a library filled with more than 2.3 million books, 2,000 newspapers, and 3,000 magazines in up to 49 languages, Samsung says.

However, the Galaxy 7.7’s promotional run at IFA was shorter than expected, as a German court ordered the company on Sept. 2—in the middle of the electronics show—to stop promoting the device in the country. The reason? An ongoing patent war with Apple.
