Samsung unveils 7.7in Tab and 5.3in smartphone
« on: September 02, 2011, 23:27 »
Samsung has taken the wraps off two additions to its mobile range - the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the 5.3in Galaxy Note smartphone.

The company announced the gadgets at the IFA 2011 event in Germany at a time when manufacturers are trying to find the ideal form factor for mobile communications.

The two devices released are a smaller-than-average tablet and a larger than average phone.

Packing a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and Google's Android 3.2 operating system into a chassis which measure just 7.89mm thick, Samsung says the Galaxy Tab 7.7 weighs in at only 335g and is capable of fitting in a jacket pocket.

It's also the first in Samsung's tablet range to have a 1,280 x 800 Super AMOLED Plus display, the same technology used in the company's award-winning Galaxy SII smartphone.

Because it's rectangular?  The lawyers are probably frothing at their mouths as we speak.

Interesting story I heard, no idea about its veracity. Apple only sued Samsung over the Galaxy SII after Samsung refused to supply them with the screens because they needed all their production for their own product...
