Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Honeycomb tablet unveiled

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus unveiled as latest Android Honeycomb tablet from the Korean manufacturer despite the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 having yet to be released

Samsung has added to its ever expanding array of Android powered tablet devices with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus touching down as an entry-level 7-inch device.

Following on for the IFA 2011 unveiled Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, the new Tab 7.0 Plus is slightly smaller yet thicker than its currently unreleased sibling and will run Google’s Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system.

“The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus packs power and productivity into a lightweight design,” said Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland.

“The latest addition to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab range demonstrates our ongoing dedication to designing a variety of premium tablets and continued innovation to suit different needs and lifestyles. We are delighted to be able to introduce the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus to the Galaxy family in the UK later this year.”

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Specs

Seemingly a direct replacement for last year’s original Samsung Galaxy Tab the Tab 7.0 Plus is to play host to a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM and a 7-inch 1024 x 600p WSVGA LCD display. A 3-megapixel rear mounted camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities is to be paired with a 2-megapixel forward facing snapper.

Overlaying Android Honeycomb 3.2 with the Samsung TouchWiz UI, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is set to line up at just 9.96mm thick with a 345g heft.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Release Date and Price

Whilst Samsung has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus “will be available in a range of UK retailers later this year,” it has failed to offer further, more precise, details.

Following on from the official Amazon Kindle Fire tablet unveiling earlier this week, however, if Samsung wants its latest 7-inch tablet to make an impact it will need to compete with the Amazon device’s impressive $199 price tag.
