It’s good looking, it’s compact, and it’s power packed. If this isn’t one of the best tablets in the world, then we don’t know what else would deserve the title.

As it is, Samsung already has an impressive gadget lineup going for them since 2011. It seems like there’s no stopping them. The ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the latest item in their gadget list – but not the least.


Incredibly light and powerful, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 boasts a Super AMOLED Plus display and is powered by a dual-core 1.4GHz processor. Did we also mention that it’s easy to pull out without causing a ruckus? Because seriously, who else would want to be pulling out a laptop in the middle of a cramped space (train? bus? plane?) or reading from an uber heavy tablet?

This small little thing fits in just about any bag:


Okay, back to the Super AMOLED Plus screen technology for a bit. Needless to say, you can only expect excellent colours in the rich display of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. Brilliantly engineered for your HD videos! Small but powerful screen? Yes.


Of course, there’s a lot more going on with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 than just lightness and portability. Although portability really is key here – especially for those of us who insist on the ease of entertainment on-the-go.

And by entertainment, we mean playing “Draw Something” for hours on end:

Excuse our bad drawing.

The next great thing about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is that it saves you from having to carry a gajillion gadgets all at once because it comes with a 3.2 auto-focus camera (totally useful if you don’t expect professional shots) and it also supports voice call.

So you can veto a camera and a phone from your “don’t leave home without” list.

Trust Samsung to create such a wonder (of the world), that is totally capable of doing so many things all at once without breaking a sweat.

Also, we have to say that we’re totally loving it’s purposely sexy back. It has a super sweet aluminium back with two plastic slabs on the top and the bottom, which prevents it from slipping easily. Seriously, what more can you hope for in a tablet. Right?
