No sign of them here yet. The 7.7" and 5.3" have also been announced, don't expect to see them here for a wee while though.

The 7.7 sounds like a worthy successor to the original, an extra .7" and a Super-AMOLED screen with a 1.4Ghz dualcore CPU running Honeycomb. Should be a nice piece of kit, might have to donate my original one to the girlfriend.

Likewise I love my 7" Tab and if I could get a slightly bigger one I would keep it and my ASUS 10.1

I looked at a 7" side by side with a 10" xoom, the 7" looked really tiny. 8" might be a nice sweet spot, if they don't have a huge border around the screen.
