Many of us grew up with relatively small, low-resolution televisions as the primary -- perhaps the only -- screen in the home. We didn't think about it at the time, but these displays had a resolution of roughly 480i. That's the number of horizontal lines that are drawn across the screen. The "i" means "interlaced": only half of those lines are changed at a time. Back in the day, that was the best we had. As screens started getting bigger, the lines became more obvious -- and the picture got worse. The industry has standardized on two primary television resolutions: 720 and 1080. While the ...

Samsung wants to make an Android tablet for everyone, which is why they have four screen sizes: 7.0", 7.7", 8.9", and 10.1". For many, their 7.0" and 7.7" tablets provide an excellent level of portability while also giving you plenty of screen to warrant a great tablet experience. The Galaxy Tab 7.7, in particular, is a special tablet because it's the only Samsung tablet to utilize their Super AMOLED Plus panel. It also uniquely has a dual-core Samsung Exynos 1.4GHz chip, instead of the Nvidia Tegra 2, found on the Tab 8.9 and 10.1. It's the only Samsung tablet to use real metal materials. ...

Previously we unboxed the slim, light, and gorgeous Galaxy Tab 7.7. The Tab 7.7 is unique among the Galaxy Tab line in that it uses a Super AMOLED Plus panel, which means you get those same fantastic blacks and bright colors on the Tab 7.7 that you do on the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II. In terms of hardware, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is super thin at just 7.9mm, which, as a frame of reference, is actually thinner than the Galaxy S II. The build quality feels fantastic, thanks to some real brushed metal used on the back. While we thought metal would be more resistant to scratches than plastic, ...

Early this morning, we showed you some of the Android tablets going up for display at this year's CES. There were some pretty remarkable models among the selection, including some new quad-core devices. Samsung and Verizon have just announced their latest tablet offering, the extra-thin Galaxy Tab 7.7. While the "7.7" figure is supposed to refer to the size in inches of the tablet's 1280 x 800 display, it very nearly doubles as claim to the tablet's thinness; in reality, the device is just a smidge too thick, at 7.9 millimeters. While that misses the mark on the coincidence, it's still a ...

For many, the 7" screen size provided by the original Galaxy Tab was just perfect: it was portable and made typing easy in portrait orientation, but also big enough to qualify as a true tablet. The problem with the original Galaxy Tab was that it wasn't very thin, nor was it very fast (because of its single core processor). That all changes with the Galaxy Tab 7.7, which bumps the screen size of its predecessor a bit by 0.7", while adding beautiful Super AMOLED Plus screen technology to provide deep contrast and sharp text and images thanks to the RGB subpixel configuration. Not only that, ...
