The curious thing, however, is that the Korean company already sells a sequel to the original seven inch tab in all but name.</p> <p>It's called the Galaxy Tab 7.7, and it's surprisingly good considering its low public profile. Few shops stock it, and it barely gets mentioned in the company's tablet pantheon.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £480.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 – Screen </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The highlight of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the screen. Using the same AMOLED technology as the <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-s-ii">Galaxy S II</a> smartphone and the <a href="/review/samsung-galaxy-note">Galaxy Note</a> mini-tablet, it's absolutely stunning. Not only is it bright, absurdly colourful and responsive, at 1280x800 pixels it's pin sharp too. <a href="/review/grand-theft-auto-iii-10-year-anniversary-edition">GTA III</a> looks (and sounds) magnificent.

Even though it has a superlative screen and outstanding battery life, it's hard to justify when it costs £70 more than a high quality 10inch tablet. For smaller tablets, it's an even tougher sell: the 8.9inch <a href="/review/motorola-xoom-2-media-edition">Motorola Xoom 2 Media Edition</a> is nearly as good but costs £150 less, and then there's the improbably cheap <a href="/review/amazon-kindle-fire">Kindle Fire</a>, which simply has to hit UK shores soon – assuming we don't skip straight to the <a href="/news/portable-media/rumour-mill/amazon-kindle-fire-2-coming-this-may">Kindle Fire 2</a>.</p> <p>If we were Samsung, we'd ditch the Tab 2 and focus on getting the price for this down, because everything about it is the way a tablet should be.
