Verizon customers looking for another tablet option now have the choice of the Galaxy Tab 7.7. The smallest of the current Galaxy Tab series comes packed with Verizon’s 4G LTE connectivity, a Super AMOLED Plus screen at 1280×800 resolution, and a 1.4 Ghz dual-core processor. Other goodies include a premium brushed metal casing, an IR blaster for TV control, 16 GB of on-board storage with a microSD card slot for expansion up to 32 GB, and dual cameras, the rear one capable of 720p video capture. The device uses Android 3.2 with Samsung’s TouchWiz UX Android enhancement suite for tablets hitching along for the ride. A upgrade date for Android 4.0 hasn’t been initially announced.
Samsung and Verizon are not only courting consumers with this tablet, but the enterprise as well, where the iPad remains to be a hotly demanded device among staffers. They’re hoping that Samsung’s “SAFE” suite of security and management technologies will woo IT types toward the 7.7.
