I had a quick hands-on on the GALAXY Tab 7.7 during the launch event, which also saw the launch of four other Samsung tablets and smartphones.

Samsung Electronics Co LtdThe launch of the GALAXY Tab 7.7 and Tab 7.0 Plus continues Samsung’s strategy of providing the whole spectrum of sizes for the customer, instead of dictating which is the single best size that they should adopt.

I like that approach. Depending on my personal preference and use case, I can choose which size tablet to purchase, ranging from the largest GALAXY Tab 10.1, to the smaller Tab 8.9, Tab 7.7, Tab 7.0, Tab 7.0 Plus, 5.3” Note.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 fits snugly in the dainty palms of ladies and their handbag.

The Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet is a handful – just large enough to be held in one hand. With a 7.67” disuplay, it is slightly larger than the common 7” tablet form factor in the market but the difference is hardly noticeable.

The Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 is the world’s first tablet to feature the brilliant Super AMOLED Plus display technology that makes images look more vivid through a wider range of colours.

It is powered by a 1.4GHz dual core processor, and measures only 7.89 millimeters in thinness and 335 grams in weight.

Samsung’s Hub Services – Game Hub, Readers Hub and Social Hub – offers easy access to content including games, eBooks and music. The Game Hub is pre-loaded with easy social games with fast graphics.
