With IFA 2011 in full bloom now, Samsung took the stage today to announce the next step in tablet development: its 7.7 inch model. I’m talking here about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, the world’s first Super AMOLED Plus tablet and a pretty one, too.

This model uses a 7.7 inch 1280 x 800 pixel display, runs Android 3.2 and relies on a dual core 1.4GHz CPU to do that. The device supports HSPA+ connectivity, reaching speeds of up to 21Mbps, everything inside a package as small as 335 grams and including 16 to 64 GB of internal storage. There’s also a microSD card slot on board, a 5,100 mAh battery with 10 hours of functioning time and support for WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth 3.0.

On the camera side, we get a 3MP unit at the back and a 2MP cam upfront. Honeycomb 3.2 runs on this device with TouchWiz UX customization, that includes A Live Panel menu for home screen customization with digital pics, websites and social network feeds. There’s also a Mini Apps tray feature for commonly used functions (calendar, music player and more).

Look out for a price and launch date in the following hours from IFA 2011!
