Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Launching on Verizon March 1

Verizon and Samsung announced their newest 4G LTE tablet dubbed the Galaxy Tab 7.7 at CES back in January. A release date did not accompany that announcement, but we have it for you today. March 1 is their target – that would be this Thursday – with a price of $499 on contract or $699 off. While that price will likely turn everyone off, we were impressed by the device itself when we fondled it for a couple of minutes at the beginning of the year. It’s powerful, ultra slim, has a beautiful screen, and will power through any task you throw at it while remaining portable. You can check out that video after the break.

    That is soooooooooooo stupid! Why the hell should this thing cost as much if not more than some tablets that are 10.1 inches?? It’s like those stupid fiat’s and mini’s that are just as expensive if not more than a regular sized car and they’re half the size!! Ahhh I just woke up and this is the first thing I read….. I’m going back to bed.

    LOL, why would anyone buy an on contract tablet?  when will carriers get the picture?

  • Mark Wilk

    $700 for a 7.7″ tablet with mediocre specs?? That has to be a typo. You can buy a Transformer Prime and a keyboard dock for that same price.

    Are people really buying these overpriced Verizon tablets?

    Damn you Samsung/Verizon.  Just way too much money.  

  • Butters619

    I would never buy a tablet from Verizon, look at the hideous logos lol.

    I’ll take a Google tablet that isn’t overpriced and chained to Verizon’s network.

    who keeps buying these tabs at these prices? everyone i know that still works for verizon is being driven to sell so many of these a month, i just can’t imagine getting stuck in a contract for two years for a tablet.

    I have an original 7 inch Tab and love it. However, after buying that and a Xoom, I doubt I’ll ever buy another tablet from VZW. I liked the idea of an LTE tablet until one day when Dr. Droid asked why. I couldn’t answer… So… WiFi only from now on.

    $500 for a 7.7″ tablet ON contract???   0.o

    I would buy this instead of an iPad 3 next month if the price were right. I simply dont care about a tablet with built in 4G when i can tether my phone with unlimited 4G to it for free. $499 without 4G would be too much for a 7 inch android tablet, even if it is the nicest one available.

    These companies need to hire me as a consultant, I will show them how to sell these things. how hard is it for an exec to step up and go, make this $399.99 off contract, wi-fi only or just dont sell it at all.

    Funny thing. I actually called VZ about 3 hours ago to cancel my Mifi line (I didn’t need it or use it anymore) and the rep was trying to sell me on a tablet. She specifically mentioned this to me. I was surprised I hadn’t seen it mentioned on any blogs. I guess it just got loaded into the system very recently.

  • Michael Forte

    I think this may be the perfect tablet size. Too bad it’s ridiculously overpriced.
