Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus unveiled with 1.2GHz dual-core processorAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
So far this year, Samsung has unveiled three new Android-powered tablets ranging from 7.7 to 10.1 inches in size. Now we can add the 7-inch form factor to that list as well, as Samsung today announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. This successor to Samsung's first Android slate, the Galaxy Tab, packs a 7-inch 1024x600 LCD screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 3-megapixel camera, 720p video capture, 2-megapixel shooter around front, 1GB RAM, 16 or 32GB storage, 4,000mAh battery, 21Mbps HSPA+, and Android 3.2 beneath Samsung's TouchWiz skin. Expect the Tab 7.0 Plus to hit Austria and Indonesia first at the end of October followed by a gradual rollout to the rest of the world, including the U.S.
Earlier this month we got a peek at a device then referred to as the Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus with T-Mobile 4G branding, but at the time we didn't know much about the slate besides what could be gleaned from the images. Now we know that the tablet in question is the Tab 7.0 Plus. We still don't know exactly when the Tab 7.0 Plus will be hitting T-Mobile's shelves, or any shelves in the U.S. for that matter, but you can bet that we'll let you know more when we do.
