Apple has promoted a one size fits all approach with its 9.7in [[artnid:342882|iPad]] and [[artnid:381655|iPad 2]] tablets, but this doesn't mean you aren't left with other choices.
For many users, the iPad's 9.7in screen makes it too large — some consumers would feel more comfortable using a smaller tablet with a 7in screen. This means that it can easily slip into a handbag, or suit jacket pocket.
[[artnid:367327|Samsung's Galaxy Tab]] kick-started the 7in tablet market, but a host of devices have followed including the [[artnid:372833|BlackBerry PlayBook]] and the [[artnid:401378|Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7]].
1 / 6
Samsung deserves plenty of credit for the design of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, one of the thinnest and lightest tablets on the market. However, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is ultimately hindered by Google's Android 3.2 "Honeycomb" operating system, which makes the user experience less than stellar. If you are hellbent on owning a 7in tablet, we'd give the Galaxy Tab 7.7 another look once it gets upgraded to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich verion of Android.
