Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 and GALAXY Note are not bound stateside for now

Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 and GALAXY Note are not bound stateside for now
When Samsung officially unveiled the flashy GALAXY Tab 7.7 tablet and the humongous GALAXY Note smartphone at IFA yesterday, there must have been people out there who said to themselves that their dream gizmo has finally materialized. Unfortunately, they are about to get a bit disappointed as the manufacturer might not release either of these devices in the U.S.

Reportedly, word comes straight from a Samsung spokesperson who Xavier Lanier of GottaBeMoble got to speak with during the expo. When Xavier inquired about the devices' U.S. release date, the company representative simply replied that there were “no plans” of launching neither the Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7 nor the Samsung GALAXY Note in the States.

Now, bear in mind that these plans might still change eventually. Perhaps, Samsung is still uncertain whether the devices will do well on the U.S. market or not. Furthermore, the list of countries where the GALAXY Tab 7.7 and the GALAXY Note will be sold may have yet to be completed, meaning that company representatives might have been instructed to restrain themselves from commenting on the matter.  

We still believe that there is a slight chance of both gadgets setting foot on U.S. soil eventually, but until a solid confirmation comes from Samsung itself, it would not be a good idea to set your hopes too high.


UPDATE: After inquiring with Samsung on the matter, we were told that no official statements in regards to the U.S. availability of the GALAXY Tab 7.7 and GALAXY Note have been made. That being said, it seems nothing is official yet, and we shouldn't strike the Tab 7.7 and Note off the list of possible wishes for the Holiday season yet.

Ok that's official. I want a 2.0Ghz Dual-Core 5.3" SuperAmoled Plus HD phone with a 12MP camera, 1.5Gb of Ram, 64GB internal storage, 3000 mAh battery, running Ice Cream Sandwich.

haha.
You don't want Symbian anna either though...
Symbian 3 was fine, but when i bought the Nokia X7 with Anna, Anna was very buggy. The screen on the X7 with anna, sometimed push buttons by itself, sometimes it doesn't react at all...
No, Symbian Anna was not good, in fact it had more bugs than WP7. Hopefully Belle will be good though.

Peter, to mention Symbian is almost like to mention Windows Me. Nobody remembers it - and for a good reason - as to not traumatize ourselves with painful memories.

I was talking about modern Operating Systems. Not going-to-be-dead-soon ones. WP7, Android, or maybe Bada. Nothing else that I'd want on that bad boy.

Ok, so you didn't mean symbian : )
However i myself think belle looks nice though.

It would be great to read one article on Phonearena where you don't add a comment somehow linking it to bada.

If it is related, which in this case it is. ilia said that he wanted android with those specifications, then it's allright for me to say i want bada with those specifications.

I don't care if it doesn't come out in the U.S. I will import it from Europe then. I really like that Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 for my wife. Especially a Wi-Fi version, she needs a tablet for work & the Galaxy Tab 7.7 would be perfect because it's small enough that she can put it in her purse & carry it around. All I need to get is a protective sleeve & she is good to go. Who knows, maybe I can get my friend Peterlfromsweden to help me get one at a good price & then send it to me here in the U.S. lol :-)

I could maybe do that for you, depends on how much you want to pay me... : P

But what about the quad core windows 8 tablet, wouldn't it be better to buy that one instead ?

I am sure with Android you can change the language to English, plus I want the Wi-Fi version so it should work on any Wi-Fi connection. I am more interested in the size of the tablet. If that quad-core Windows 8 tablet is 7 inches or so then I will most definitely look into that also.

A newbie, so question may be stupid. If you import it from Europe, can you still use it as a phone, or just a small tablet?

If you can use it as a phone, how do you get service?

So what the author is trying to say here is... the 2 gadgets will not come to the us.. no, wait.. maybe they will.. wait.. I don't know.

This article is absolutely pointless.

There is nothing official on regional availability of this yet. That representative in IFA was probably instructed to refrain from saying that over there.
