Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 with AMOLED screen

A smaller, brighter, Honeycomb-toting Galaxy Tab lands on the scene

Samsung has released details of the new Galaxy Tab. Sporting a droolworthy 7.7in 1,280 x 800px Super AMOLED Plus screen and running Android 3.2 Honeycomb, it ticks all the right boxes.

Powered by a 1.4GHz dual core processor, it comes with a choice of 16, 32 or 64GB of storage. Meanwhile, we're told it has a ridiculously generous 8GB RAM (which we can't help but think is a typo) and up to 32GB MicroSD storage.

The Tab 7.7 sits alongside it's bigger brother, the original 10.1in Galaxy Tab, and has a tough-looking brushed aluminium back with 3MP camera while weighing just 335g and a svelte 7.9mm thick.

HSDPA+ is on board for faster data speeds and Samsung promises that the cavernous 5,100mAh battery will provide up to 10 hours of playback time. Samsung's own TouchWiz interface is on hand, and Honeycomb's Universal Remote Control functionality for controlling all your AV kit.

No pricing or release date yet, but we'll keep you posted as always.
