    Just got this yesterday and really like it so far. The LTE in some areas is hitting over 15MBps I also like the size and the S-AMOLED screen looks great the UI is smooth and easy to work with.

    agreed .. love the size - and it's much lighter and easier to commmute with than my Xoom. Screen is beautiful - and so far battery life isn't bad. Glad I got one!

    I'm enjoying mine at the moment as well. I can't wait until I'm in a LTE area.

    I'm thinking of getting either the 8.2 Xyboard or the 7.7 Samsung. Why do you prefer the Samsung tab over Xyboard? Trying to make an informed decision instead of continuing to just be blindly loyal to Motorola. Thanks!

    The size works better for me and the display on the Samsung is WAY better. I say go to the VZW store and hold both in your hand and see what one feels better to you. I love the SAMOLED display so much more clear. Make sure when you view the Samsung you turn off auto brightness to get full effect :)

    I will say this the .5" is not a big difference, yes it is nice to have the 8.2 but the screen quality on the 7.7 IS GORGEOUS! I put "The Sitter" on it last night and watched it and wow is it good with a 720p video. plays it with no problem also. Cant say that much towards what Motorola might do.

    Plus when more developers get the 7.7 it doesnt have the locked down bootloader like all of Motorola products do.


    Also, we get a MircoSD slot, while the 8.2 does not. So I got the 16GB with a 32GB SD Card in it.

    I apologize for my ignorance, but does the Tab 7.7 have the capability out of the box to do text messages and phone calls?

    Sadly no, I wish, I truly wish is was.

    I would drop my Gnex for my 7.7 Tab in a heart beat!

    Sadly I have been without my Tab for almost a month it feels like (2-3 weeks now) Because the LCD went out on it, so Samsung has it repairing it :(

    I am looking for a Tab (7" or 10") sized tablet that can make phone calls and send text messages. The closest thing I can find is the Galaxy Note.

    Thank you for your help.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 (4G LTE) is no different from any android device. If you don't have a phone plan when you purchase it you can only get WiFi to work. You would need to set up Google Voice and then a VOIP service. This will get you calls and voice mail, I don't know about text.

    I was also looking at the xyboard but waited for the 7.7. The Samsung 7.7 has a much better battery life. I surf all day on LTE network and charge overnight. Only when I use it as a hotspot or a gps do I worry about the battery getting too low. When I don't use a lot of web, I get a couple days between charges. Way better than a laptop!!!!!
