Samsung has added yet another small factor tablet called the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus to its ever bulging portfolio; this comes after the original Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, Tab 8.9, Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Note.
It is this model, rather than the Galaxy Tab 7.7, that will replace the original Galaxy Tab it seems (although one publication makes the suggestion that the product might have come out with the sole purpose of harassing Apple's lawyers.).
The tablet, which weighs in at 345g, comes with the same 7-inch 1024x600 pixel capacitive touchscreen, a three megapixel camera and two megapixel rear camera (like the original Galaxy Tab), 1GB RAM, a dual core 1.2GHz SoC (possibly an Exynos), 16GB onboard storage (or 32GB) with a microSD card slot.
The 10mm thick Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will run on Android 3.2 Honeycomb, offer HSPA+, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Samsung has yet to say when it will go on sale and at what cost. Another missing piece of information is whether it will be able to make calls like its predecessor.
Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Mobile at Samsung UK and Ireland said, "The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus packs power and productivity into a lightweight design."
