Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 asks for $669 at preorder, all for its Super AMOLED Plus display

The slate currently goes for $668.5 at Negri, with no availability date listed, which is pretty steep for a sub-10" tablet. Granted, it is a the first living proof that Super AMOLED can be done in larger size for consumer devices, but it's still hard to stomach such a price.
We've played around with it in the office, and the slate is indeed well-built and responsive, plus the screen colors pop beautifully, but we hope that if and when it makes its way to the US officially, the price will be more right than what we have now on with preorders.

OMG I spent like 1 hour yesterday scouring the web looking for this and here it is!!! With the Transformer prime clocking in at $500 this will hopefully be discounted. I can't be bothered getting a Touchpad on Sunday as even for the price, the thing SUCKS.

The price point has been set at less than $300 by the Amazon Fire and B&N Tablet. I paid $450 for an Acer A500, but think that was too much. Paying over $300 for a generic Android tablet is not happening. They're a cheap commodity and we are already seeing the beginnings of a flood of Chinese OEM products in the < $300 range.

Good Luck!!!! Like I said before---the tablets have to be better and cheaper than the Ipad2 in order to be successful----This is not the case here!!!! 16 gb ipad2 with wifi $499.00. Now here comes Samsung with a 7.7 tablet for $669..not gonna convince the consumer at that price....Yes, it may be better than the ipad2 in terms of specs, but it's not cheaper......now if it were $399...then I would see Apple begin to worry, but this is not the case either...

Samsung needs to learn that they can't compete with apple at similar or higher price points, even if they have the better product. The ipad/iphone is too big of a brand and most consumers will choose that over a samsung product similar priced. Now if they sold their tablets at around $300-400, they would make a killing. Just look at how many people bought the touchpad during the firesale. How many people bought the transformer and will be buying the transformer prime because of its lower price. If Samsung can put aside over a hundred million to fight a legal battle with apple, they can surely lower the prices of their tablets and make a nice profit as well...

Too many Galaxy Tabs, way too many. I know of these so far. Original Galaxy Tab 7 -Small Tab 7+ - Small Tb 7.7 - Kinda small Tab 8.9 - Medium Tab 10.1 - Large All within just about 1 years time. I am holding out for the Galaxy Tab 8.21 though. Actually I will just be settling for the one size fits all TF Prime. Better specs, better updates, great hardware, lower price. How does Sammy think it can get away with a price tag of $669. I will have a brand new Prime with keyboard dock for less than this thing. No thanks

That's the problem with all these other companies. Thy think a better spec product Demands a premium price which it does NOT even with high demand! They can sell at lower prices but sell more in quantity thereby making a profit and make Apple worry. It's all about corporate greed! 'Nuf said!!
