While Apple has, so far, stuck to a single basic form factor for its tablet efforts, Samsung has taken an approach that's more like throwing a bunch of things at the wall to see what sticks. As such, it has 7-inch, 8.9-inch, 10.1-inch and, now, 7.7-inch tablets.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 that's the subject of this review features a gorgeous HD-resolution, 1280 x 800 pixel
It has a sufficiently large battery that can power its 1.4GHz, dual-core processor through a full day's use, and its industrial design is attractive - if not exactly unique. The downfall for this device is its $499 on-contract price. That's a lot of money to pay for a device that still requires its own 2 year data contract to operate. You can get it without a contract for $699, but that still makes it a full $70 more expensive than Apple's impressive 3rd generation iPad, which includes a much larger, higher resolution display and also supports LTE data.
