You have to admire Samsung. They are willing to try every tablet permutation. There’s already been a Galaxy Tab 7.0, 10.1, 8.9, and now a Galaxy Tab 7.7. Each number denotes the screen size.

At about half the size of an iPad, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is more of a one-handed tablet. It has a Super AMOLED Plus display (that’s marketer-speak for a screen with vibrant, bright colors). And, of course, this Android tablet has access to Google’s ever-growing marketplace of apps.

Screen size: 7.7"

Connectivity: Wi-Fi, 4G

Price: $500+ (Expected)

Available: February or March 2012 (Expected)

The hook: Lean, mean, Android machine.
