The 7.7 was announced almost 8 months ago and in many markets the 3G version is still not even available.

As Sammie themselves (and other manufacturers) are now starting to announce quad core products it'll set expectation in the marketplace that quad core is now the base level.

This discourages buyers from buying dual core products.

Fewer sales means developers less inclined to work on a product that's perceived as out of date.

We, as owners of 7.7 devices get fewer ROM options.
Todays Google announcement pretty much kills the 7.7 IMHO, going forward tablets have to be quad core.

I question the need for quad core, unless it's for gaming.

The 7.7 is perfectly capable of handling anything thrown at it, especially with hardware acceleration for video.

Even the new iPad has not adopted a quad core processor yet.

Look at it this way - if an app was released that required a quad core processor then they would be closing off their app from about 90+% of the potential market that would still be running single/dual core devices.
