Samsung had already shown the Galaxy Tab 7.7 slate for a while now, but apparently not for the US public. The Verizon version of the tablet was seen at CES 2012, in Las Vegas, packing a beautiful Super AMOLED Plus display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. The device measures 7.9mm and can be seen in the image below.

Verizon will sell the LTE version of this unit and you must know that we also get here a 1.4GHz dual core processor and Android 3.2 as the OS of choice. We’ll probably get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as an update this year for this 7.7 inch tablet. Galaxy Tab 7.7 features a 3 megapixel cam at the back, 2MP cam at the front and 16GB of storage. There’s also an unusual aspect: a side mounted infrared port that turns the gadget into a remote control for other devices.

We have no idea on the pricing or availability, but Samsung and Verizon promised us that the product will hit the stores in the coming weeks. As you can see there’s a mark showing that this product is not recommended for sale in Germany, after the lawsuit started by Apple.
