The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available soon to United States customers through T-Mobile. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus looks great as a more compact tablet. The price tag is looking pretty attractive, too, and might even give new budget tablets like the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet a run for their money.
The Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet might be saved by display performance – the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus doesn’t feature the brilliant AMOLED display of some of Samsung’s more high-end offerings. Samsung Media Hubs do well to make a wide range of entertainment available, but they will be hard-pressed to match what Amazon is capable of in that department. That said, the heavy-hitters (blockbusters and best-sellers) will all likely be available readily using either one – those who are only interested in mainstream, widely known books, movies, music, and games should be happy with either one. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus does feature Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and runs on a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 comes with either 16 GB or 32 GB of storage, and has a microSD card slot. Going with T-Mobile also means that the tablet has access to T-Mobile’s 4G network – not a bad draw in its own right.
The 16 GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available from T-Mobile on November 16th for $299.99 with a two-year contract. The price gets knocked down to $249.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
