Samsung hasn’t hit on real tablet success yet, but it’s damned if it’s going to stop trying. Meet their newest attempt: the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. As the name suggests, there’s a 7.7 inch screen fronting up a 1.4GHz dual-core processor. It’s running Android 3.2, but the big question here is: does size really matter?

Samsung has followed the original Galaxy Tab‘s 5 inch proportions, and the 10.1 inch version with a mid-size perfect for your manbag. The screen is a little special too, it’s a 1280 x 800 resolution AMOLED,promising brighter, richer colours.

Android is skinned with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UX and there’s HSPA+ inside, to tickle your fancy with a theoretical download speed of 21Mbps.

There’s a choice of storage options, ranging from 16GB to 64GB and a microSD slot for those who want more. Battery life is chalked up at 10 hours, using its 802.11n Wi-Fi as well as 3G. There’s all the usual GPS, Bluetooth and twin cameras (packing 3 megapixel in the rear and 2 megapixel up front) too.

In short, it’s yet another Android tablet with some (Touch)whizzy software. The big difference here is the size. Are you convinced yet? Shout up in the comments below.

    A tablet device for me has to be easily portable & usable for long periods at a time with one hand. Great though the iPad is, unfortunately I find it still a bit cumbersome to carry around. I had a Gtab 10.1 for two days before returning it for more or less the same reason. This 7.7″ size has me interested as I had a Archos 70 before & it to be a good size.
