Two years ago, who would’ve thought we’d be covering actual tablet development? In that time, we were astonished by the screen size of the HTC Touch HD – 3.7 inch almost seemed too big for our pockets. And see where we landed now: the tablet and smartphone industries are slowly blending together, especially thanks to Dell’s Streak and Samsung’s Galaxy Note. It is incredible to see how these industries change so rapidly. Fortunately, development is more active than ever before, and even tablets are supported on XDA now.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 is their latest addition to the tablet range. Thanks to Chainfire’s efforts to include Galaxy Tab 7.7 support in his Mobile ODIN utility and the successful rooting development, the seven-point-seven will probably receive its very first custom ROM pretty soon. Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) is probably not far from being displayed on a Super-AMOLED Plus tablet display for its very first time – for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is the only tablet with that screen technology at this moment.
