Samsung Might Have Just Announced My Next Tablet, And Possibly Phone

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7

IFA 2011 kicked off today and Samsung quickly announced a number of hardware product. The 2 major ones were a tablet and something in between a tablet and a phone. First was the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, the successor to the original 7″ Galaxy Tab. It comes with a dual core 1.4 CPU, A 1280 x 800 7.7″ super AMOLED plus HD screen, SD card slot and a reduction in thickness as this new 7.7″ will be as thin as the new Galaxy Tab 10.1. The device still has shortcomings, The device won’t have a full size USB port as I think Samsung will try to push its dongles on the consumers but I would have preferred the Tab to have a full USB port as the Android OS can make use of it in a lot of scenarios. And will have samsung’s Touchwiz UI. Even though the Touchwiz UI is great, I prefer the Android’s Vanilla experience.

Galaxy Note

The other Samsung announcement was a little weird one. A phone named the Galaxy Note that has a 5.3″ super AMOLED plus HD with a resolution of 1280 x 800 that should “blur the line between smartphones and tablets”. The Dell Streak-esque device also has a stylus tucked away underneath to remind us of the glorious Windows Mobile days. and it also comes with similar specs to the Tab 7.7. The phone is a little humongous for my taste but we will see when it gets released Q4/Q1 2012.

You should note the Nexus Prime, google’s flagship device for 2011, that had its specs leaked last weak had similar specs to the Galaxy Note, but I doubt that Google will release a phone with a 5.3″ screen, 4.5″ is more practical but we have to wait and see if Samsung can squeeze their new Super AMOLED Plus HD screens in a 4.5″ frame. I hope so.

    Geeks will always bring back bad ideas!! come on!!! a device between a smart phones and a tablet with a stylus?! Samsung should keep the innovating part to the designers at apple and they should stick to what they do best .. Following the trends

    The Samsung Note looks very interesting! I’m loving the specs! I can’t wait to see the new Nexus Prime! I hope to god it isn’t a Motorolla! I haven’t gotten a Android Tablet yet but I am planning on getting one soon! I keep postponing! The Amazon tablet looks interesting too!

      You and me both, I haven’t got an Android tablet either and the rumored Amazon tablet sounds interesting. also, the Nexus prime might be the next must-have Android device.

      If they stick to that pricing that means its not for everyone. Also, A 5.3 inch screen isn’t for everyone.
