Samsung came wondering into the IFA in Berlin with a pair of announcements: the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the oddly-sized Galaxy Note. honestly, it took me awhile to reconcile with the fact that the latter is in fact a smartphone. first off is the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that has a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor and features a super AMOLED display, HSPA+21 4G connectivity, a SD card slot, 1080p video playback and will be available in 8, 16, 32 or 64-GB model. the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is powered by Android 3.2 aka Honeycomb OS. so just exactly how pocketable is the Tab 7.7? it measures just 196 x 133 x 7.89-mm and weighs a mere 335 grams. no price and availability has been announced, though.
