Galaxy Tab 7.7 | Samsung
Samsung updating GT-P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 units with Android 4.0, Tab 7.7, Plus 7, and 8.9 models to follow
Samsung is rolling out an Android 4.0 update to the original GT-P7510 Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the UK and elsewhere, and the company is reportedly preparing to update other models of the original Galaxy Tab lineup as well.
A ruling from the Dusseldorf Higher Regional Court in Germany clears the way for the Korean maker’s redesigned Galaxy Tab 10.1N, but extended a ban on the smaller Galaxy Tab 7.7 to the entire EU.
Samsung will be updating the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, 7.7, 8.9, and 10.1 to the latest version of Google's Android OS beginning in July.
Samsung has posted a list of phones which will be receiving an upgrade to Android 4.0, with a number of carrier-specific phones included. However, the Galaxy S — a handset that Samsung said was "under review" following a public outcry — has not made it onto the list.
Verizon has just posted a list to its website to help let people know which devices are destined to get Android 4.0. The list includes the HTC ThunderBolt, Incredible 2, Rhyme, and Rezound, as well as the Motorola Droid Xoom, RAZR, RAZR Maxx, Droid 4, Bionic, Xyboard 8.1 and 10.1. The LG Spectrum and both the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and 10.1 appear on the list, too.
Samsung plans to make the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note its first Android 4 devices in the first quarter of next year, the company has just announced.
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 has appeared in the FCC's database with Verizon LTE bands. The Android tablet should be a very svelte competitor to the iPad, but may only launch with Android 3.2.
The Samsung Android tablet family today welcomes a new member in the form of the Galaxy Tab 7.7. As with the Tab 8.9 and 10.1 that came before it, this slate’s name is derived from its 7.7-inch screen size, although unlike its predecessors, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 offers the superlative Super AMOLED Plus display technology.
And now it’s the turn of the slimmest tablet Samsung (and the wider electronics market) has yet turned out: the Galaxy Tab 7.7. It’s 7.89mm thick, packs two 1.4GHz processing cores, and touts WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution on a spectacular Super AMOLED Plus screen.
