Enterprise Mobility: Samsung Sweetens Galaxy Tab 7.7 With Honeycomb, Galaxy Note Gets 'Gingerbread'
Samsung isn't letting the lawsuits Apple keeps filing against it over its Google Android tablet line get it down. Just three days after unveiling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy S II Long-Term Evolution (LTE) devices at IFA in Berlin, Samsung trotted out the Galaxy Tab 7.7 Android 3.2 "Honeycomb" slate. The tablet, which follows the Tab 8.9 and Tab 10.1 media consumption gadgets from Samsung, was accompanied by a new tweener, an Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" smartphone called the Galaxy Note. The Tab 7.7 is a svelte 0.31 inches thin and weighs only three-quarters of a pound. The Galaxy Note has a 5.3-inch high-definition Super active-matrix organic LED Plus (Super AMOLED Plus) display and comes with the S pen, a digital pen to let users take notes and edit them from the gadget. In this slide show, eWEEK profiles both Android devices, which are powered by dual-core, 1.4GHz processors and run on LTE and Evolved High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA+) networks.
