Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Now Available From £332.50

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, which is the follow-up to the popular Galaxy Tab and the tablet alterego of the Galaxy S II, has appeared on Dixons for £332.50 after the five per cent XMAS5 discount code.

The GT-P6210, as it is known, comes with a dual core Samsung Exynos 4210 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 7-inch PLS LCD capacitive touchscreen (with a 1024x600 pixel resolution), a microSD card slot, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, IR, a 4000mAh battery and a microUSB port.

Like the previous Galaxy Tab, it also carries a 3.2-megapixel camera, plus a front-facing two megapixel one and can record HD ready movies.

The tablet is powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb, rather than Gingerbread as one would expect, and the inclusion of Samsung's own Touchwiz user interface crowns an altogether very attractive tablet.

One has to wonder, however, whether it makes sense for Samsung to have so many stock keeping units when it comes to tablets.

The Galaxy Note could be considered as one, with the Galaxy Tab 7.0. 7.7, 8.9 and 10.1 adding to the tally.

A 3G version called the GT-P6200 has been unveiled and should cost in excess of £400 when it is available next year.
