Your Life, 2.0 – Samsung Tab Lab
Live, Work, Play & Create
Those four words were the main themes that ran through Samsung's special launch event that was held last Saturday, February 4 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park. On display the whole day were the Korean giant's latest Android-powered tablets, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Galaxy Tab 7.7. The tablets were spread out around the park in four areas designated as Live 2.0, Work 2.0, Play 2.0, and Create 2.0. Each area had Samsung representatives on hand to demonstrate how exactly the new devices could upgrade that particular aspect of your life.
Super-Sized Super AMOLED Plus
The definite star of the show was the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 which features the largest Super AMOLED Plus screen on a mobile device at 7.7 inches. The display technology offers the deepest blacks and most vibrant colors we've seen on a tablet so far, impressively maintaining its composure even in the bright sunlight outdoors (video demo here). It is also super sharp, featuring a resolution of 800 x 1280. Under the hood it sports an exceptionally fast 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and a Mali-400MP dedicated graphics chip, making it suitable for any kind of work or play. If you want to pick one up, it will set you back a cool PhP 32,990. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, which was also being showcased, starts at PhP 23,990. You can check out our review on it here. Both tablets run the Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS.
Of Rockstars and Gadget Geeks
The Tab Lab was also graced a handful of famous personalities who have been able to boost their productivity and creativity with the new tablets. These included singer and songwriter Jim Paredes, and Aids Tecson, founder of Underground Logic, a video production house which post-produces a lot of the television ads we see today. Capping the night off was a trio of performances from the Radioactive Sago Project, Peryodiko, and Ebe Dancel.
