Samsung Announces 4G LTE Galaxy Tab 7.7 for Verizon

Samsung hasn’t had their CES press conference yet, but they aren’t going to be beat to the punch with CES announcements. A press release was just issued in conjunction with Verizon for the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7. The device features a 7.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, providing a gorgeous 1280 x 800 picture. It’s the biggest of its class.

Also on board is a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 3MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, and 16GB of internal sotrage. The whole thing runs on Android 3.2 with TouchWiz on top, and the hardware measures in at 7.9mm thick and 12 ounces of total weight. Did we mention 4G LTE support?

    But is it only on Verizon? I would never jump ship to get this. Please be a sim abased version out there

    • Tim242

      All LTE devices are SIM-based.

        Really So Verizon uses Sim based tech now vs. CDMA?  Did I miss something? 

        • Sam Keaser

          CDMA isn’t SIM based but LTE is.

          They use both technologies. 

        • Tim242

          All Verizon LTE phones use SIM cards. You can swap between devices on Verizon’s network. However, it won’t work on other networks due to using different frequencies.

          you did….CDMA and LTE tech are two different things…ie in order to have a CDMA phone able to take advantage of the LTE network, it has to have a sim card….it just isnt the same sim technology that goes into gsm phones…

    If no SIM based, a WIFI option please!

    Anyone know what SOC this uses?  1.4GHz almost implies an Exynos, but I am unaware of any Exynose devices with LTE.

    • reiththestud

      Probably not since even the Verizon Galaxy Nexus does not have the Exynos. Exynos isn’t compatible with yet with American LTE radios.

      • Kevin Cox

        You say that as if the GSM Nexus uses the Exynos, which it doesn’t. 

        • reiththestud

          Good point. I wasn’t aware of that. Doesn’t change the fact that Exynos isn’t LTE compatible though, so it’s still a viable argument. 

  • Sam Keaser

    I’m sure I’m dreaming, but, $499 or below off contract and I’ll be picking one up. 

    • Kevin Cox

      I thought the same thing but I really don’t think 7-8″ is going to be enough anymore. When I had an Incredible it seemed like a great idea but after seeing the Tab 7 Plus next to any 4.3 or bigger phone it just doesn’t seem like enough of a difference to justify spending money on it.
