The second generation 7-inch tablet from Samsung; first details on Galaxy Tab 7
Samsung today launched the successor to its original tablet Tab Galaxy, a year after the first sample of the Galaxy 7-inch tab at the fair last year in Berlin IFA trade. Samsung could update the initial model, and put your naming convention is more in line with the other tablets in the alignment of the company (Galaxy Galaxy Tab Tab 10.1 and 8.9) was predictable. Samsung AMOLED including a Super Plus screen as big a screen was less of a fact, but no less welcome.
A year ago, some observers had theorized that Samsung AMOLED display may include a first tab of Galaxy. But the company did not show that out of its 7-inch Super AMOLED display technology also until November 2010. Panels-actually 7.7 inches, entered mass production in August 2011, so that the use of Super AMOLED also makes perfect sense for the next generation 7-inch Tab class.
The screen offers the benefits of AMOLED Super Plus (bright, vibrant colors), along with a strong resolution of 1,280 by 800 pixels. That makes the higher resolution screen on a table we've seen. So far. Introduction of the sheet today, as the note that Samsung was a revelation in the world. From now on, according to Samsung, there are no plans to reach the U.S. market. That said, the fall CTIA is not far away, and I hope that we will have news from Samsung on Tab 7.7 's availability of U.S. just in time for holiday shopping final crisis.
Packages tab from 7.7 1.4 GHz dual-core (no information on the type of CPU) and Android Honeycomb 3.2v (it is unclear what the "v" refers to the spec sheet, although this does not include Samsung's TouchWiz interface UX). Like other Samsung Galaxy Tab presentations this year, 7.7 is distinguished by its slim and elegant. 7.7 The tab measures 7.89 millimeters thick, or 0. 31 inches, almost two tenths of an inch less than the depth of the original Galaxy tab.
The new model is lighter, too: It weighs only 335 grams (0.75 pounds), which shaved a full tenth pound of last year's model, and makes this one of the lightest tablet on the market. That weight also helps to make this device the first pill to begin in earnest to close the gap between the pads and dedicated e-reader with E Ink displays. Of course, the e-readers now hover around the half pound, but progress on the tab 7.7 's in shedding weight is noticeable, however.
Another less promoted, but stresses the inclusion: the functionality of the universal remote control, so you can control your home's entertainment system components directly from the tablet. (Presumably this ability to use built-in IR transmitter, but that was not mentioned in the specification information available.) After trying a URC in the new Sony Tablet S, I am convinced that this will be a feature of a splint must-have in the future.
The connectivity options on this model are strong. The chip supports 7.7 21Mbps HSPA +, Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n (both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), and Wi-Fi channel bonding for improved performance Wi-Fi . As announced in this release worldwide, tab 7.7, as well as the original tab, allows voice calls. Assuming a 7. 7 is in the U.S., however, I expect that we would lose the ability to voice, as we did in the original tab. (Note to U.S. carriers: Some consumers really want their tablets to be able to act as your phone, too.)
Samsung says the tab 7.7 's 5100 mAh provides up to 10 hours of video playback.
The unit will come in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and capabilities with a microSD card slot onboard up to 32 GB of files. The cautious language of the Samsung press release indicates a dangerous trend that form, however. The company specifies the microSD card slot is a "direct transfer of multimedia files" just something that Sony did with its Tablet S too. I do not like this trend a bit: consumers are used to supplement your storage card slots are not used solely as a transfer mechanism.
Clearly, with this announcement, and the recent launch of the A100 and other Iconia Acer, the market for 7 inch tablet has a new lease on life. Now all we need is the time of launch and price of Samsung, which I hope we will hear more about in October.
