Galaxy Tab 7 Plus

Samsung have announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, an improved version of the original Galaxy Tab. This new device runs Honeycomb (v3.2), has sleeker looks, and at 9.9mm is thinner than its ancestor which measured 12mm.

It is powered by a Dual-core 1.2GHz processor, has 1GB RAM, same 3.2 MP camera, same battery, but also supports USB Host.

This looks like the tablet that I have been waiting for (though I am also very curious about the Amazon Kindle Fire). It is scheduled to be released by end of October, but no pricing info has been revealed yet.

  1. yep u r missing the dual core processer and the thikness of the set compared to the old one

  2. This doesn’t seem impressive. And definitely not the best of Samsung. Have you critically considered the 5.3 inch Samsung Note? It has better screen resolition and is an all round champion!

  3. Facts to be considerd:Galaxy Note -5inch- is more expensive than the 10.1 inch tab.and almost same size as GS2

  4. Samsung is given everybody a close marking.

    Very soon Samsung will start allowing people to order for the screen size and specs they desire.

    But now they have to contend with the Amazon Kindle Fire $199.

    Great Job Sammy.
