Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Launch
2 Sep 2011 - By Omar Mariño

The first tablet launched to the market was, without doubt, a real success due to multiple factors. The first one of them was related to the introduction of a “change” in the market by being a useful, unique, and very innovative product. The second factor was certainly associated with the company that introduced it, since everything coming from Cupertino seems to have assured success (of course, we are talking about Apple). Also, another factor is the great novelty of having a small computer in our hands and, lastly but not least, it’s important to remember that the iPad had little competition in its early days; in fact,  while the competition is greater and challenging today, the iPad is still considered the undisputed king of the tablet market. However, Samsung is working hard to be the most important Apple challenger in this segment with its Galaxy Tab family, which now has a new member: The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, a launch that maybe is not easy to understand for some people due to slight differences with the tiny Galaxy Tab 7.0.

The Sony Tablet S has a design similar to tablets from other companies, with a 9.4-inch screen and Android 3.1.
