Samsung 7.7 inch Tablet

This seems interesting:

http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/01/s...-display-dual/

seems like a tablet I will be interested. Specs are:
Display - 7.7-inch super AMOLED
OS - Android 3.2 (TouchWiz UX)
processor - dual-core 1.4GHz processor
storage - 16GB to 64GB
Battery - 5,100mAh rated for 10 hours

Unless they ask for more than 400 this (which is very likely), I am interested in it.

Looks nice. 7.7" seems like a good size.

That makes me wonder how do they decide the sizes like 7.7, 4.1, etc..?

I think it has a lot to do with how they slice up the panels for efficiency.

After seeing HTC's pricing, anything will seem reasonable at this point

Edit: of course, after HP's fire sale, maybe nothing seems reasonable at this point!

Maybe they're going after RIM's BlackBerry Playbook as it's in the same size range and satisfies the needs of those in the iPad-Is-Too-Big camp.

And, AMOLED = awesome. I bet a lot of current tablet owners will be thinking of switching to this just for that AMOLED.

I read on Ars Technica this morning that they're also going to do a 5.3" screen device that is designed to use a stylus input for notetaking. I have a Tab 10.1, and it's a nice piece of tech.

This new 7.7 inch tablet weighs 335 grams/11.8 ounces. Put in perspective the kindle 3 weighs 240 grams/8.5 ounces.

A small correction it's actually "Super AMOLED Plus". This thing only gets better.

I don't think they are going to ask for more than $400. Maybe a little more

Voice and Video Support for Better Communication
The Galaxy Tab 7.7 offers both voice and video calls for better communication. There is no need to bring a headset and BT for voice calls. In addition, it is possible to call privately in public places with Receiver Mode.
even better. at least outside the US like the original Tab it will act as a phone as well. they even listed it in the Phone section of the IFA Press Kit http://www.samsungmobilepress.com/me...sp?Category=18

Yes, but the Kindle is a single-purpose device (despite allowing some web browsing as an extra). It doesn't have a lot of things internally that a tablet normally does, and the screen type is both a lot larger and a different material (and thus heavier).
