I guess predicting when a device is going to be released to the masses is somewhat similar in certain ways as predicting the weather – there are telltale signs, and just as ominous looking clouds roll over town signals an impending shower or perhaps even a thunderstorm, so too, does a device’s appearance at the FCC pave the way for a release that is imminent. One of the most recent visitors over to the FCC would be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, where this 3G capable model does seem rather similar to the Wi-Fi only model which went through the FCC’s hoops much earlier in September, confirming HSPA+ connectivity this time around.
If you’re a sucker for model numbers, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 will also be known as the GT-P6800, where other hardware specifications include Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth, and GPS navigation capability. No idea on whether it will arrive soon or not over here Stateside, but if past “performances” of other devices arriving at the FCC is an indicator, then soon might just be the word.
